Education

The EQC kiosk at Te Papa.

EQC's public education programme includes sponsorship of exhibitions and events at museums and natural history centres; schools’ programmes; and publications and web information.

The purpose of our public education programme is to:

  • raise homeowners’ awareness of the natural disaster risks in their region, and
  • show homeowners practical things they can do to make their homes safer and prevent damage if there is a natural disaster.

This reduces the impact of disasters on people’s lives. From an insurance perspective, it limits the insurance liability and reduces the cost of reinsurance.

In this section you can read about our sponsorships of exhibitions at:
