BEDOLLA SOLANO, Ramón; MIRANDA ESTEBAN, Adriana; BEDOLLA SOLANO, Juan José  and  SANCHEZ ADAME, Oscar. Prospective and Educative Analysis of the Impact of Hurricane Max in a Guerrero Community. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2021, vol.11, n.22, e033.  Epub Sep 20, 2021. ISSN 2007-7467.

Hurricane Max occurred in September 2017. In Costa Chica, Guerrero, it caused negative environmental, economic and social effects. The objective of this work was to analyze the social impact of said affectations to identify prevention or mitigation measures in the face of future events, considering the adaptation of the risk culture and Environmental Education for Sustainability (EES). An unstructured interview was applied to affected citizens that considered variables related to the environment, the economy, society, the perception of risk and the EES. The results of this analysis showed damage to the environment: falling trees, overflowing and flooding; economically, the population lost material goods, animals and some damages in their houses; as for the social, people suffered physical and emotional damage; there were impacts on water and electricity services, and, therefore, lack of food. The disconnection that exists between society and government authority in emergency situations was also exposed. It is necessary to foster a culture of risk in the face of natural events in the population and promote EES with a view to developing skills and attitudes of care and preservation of the environment.

Keywords : risk culture; environmental education for sustainability; hurricanes; environment.
