The UIA WP ARES was awakened during the past 10 years, researching the vital field of sheltering the victims of natural disasters in a bioclimatic manner. Shortly after the major natural disaster which struck Japan, coincidently the very same hosting country of the 24th UIA World Congress, the ARES session will be a primary hub of exchanging views and aspects, which may cure, in the future, people affected by natural disasters through the use of renewable energy sources.
