Abstract :Recently the frequency of occurrence of natural disaster caused by global warming and ozone layer destruction has increased. South Korea is not an excluded area from natural disasters anymore and small and big sizes of disasters have broken out. However, government and public agencies have only focused on controlling the situation and restoring damages conditions and the disaster mitigation education to minimize damages is significantly insufficient. This study aims to identify the current status and problems of disaster mitigation education and to find out the alternative plans for it. The literature research was employed as the study method based on previous studies related to disaster mitigation education. Currently disaster mitigation education in South Korea has been implemented for citizens, children and youth through school system, civil defense drills, safety learning centers and fire authorities. It was found that the problems of current disaster mitigation education have been caused by the implementation of superficial and theory-focused education and the lacks of contents, time and personnel for education. To solve those problems, alternative plans such as the education focusing on experience, the development of educational contents according to the subjects, and the expansion of specialized personnel and staff to carry out education need to be explored.
