Abstract: This work describes some activities of information and earthquake education in Abruzzo and Lazio started some months later the 6 April L’Aquila earthquake. The “La Terra tretteca… Ji No! – Ritorno a scuola” project: in September 2009 we provided support to teachers in the most damaged areas at the beginning of the school year. We met more than 2700 teachers to provide detailed information on earthquakes, how a seismic sequence evolves and what to do to reduce the risk. 18 schools in Abruzzo (L’Aquila, Teramo and Pescara Provinces) are still working in the EDURISK Project, a project aimed to school for seismic risk reduction (described in another work of this session). Another initiative started after a seismic sequence with more than 400 small earthquakes in southern Lazio in August-September 2009: the “Tutte je munne trèma... Je nò!“ project in February and March 2010 allowed us to meet more than 1000 teachers to provide information about recent and historical seismicity and seismic hazard of the Frosinone Province. These initiatives arise from different experiences and skills gained in recent years in seismic risk reduction projects (EDURISK Project) and in the field of informationand emergency management.
