This second phase resulted in 2 works for each category plus an additional pool of 7 works in the Open Theme category. The 2 works selected on each category by the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre will become part of some of their actions, such as: "participative workshops, educational videos and collaborative learning games developed to improve the understanding and prevention of disasters". The additional 7 works, also selected by the Climate Centre, could be also used by them in further humanitarian actions. All works selected will be made available online during July of 2013.
