Risk Factor

Risk Factor improves our ability to understand, analyze and respond to the short and long-term risks we all share, helping us to live safer, healthier and more fulfilling lives.

“Terrorism, war, climate change, nuclear meltdowns, radiation, cancer, type 2 Diabetes, heart disease. In the news, we’re constantly being told what to worry about next. I suspect some risks are overblown... others worse than I imagine. Bad risk assessment leads to bad consequences for us all. We need better ways to assess risk for ourselves” – Robert Lang, Producer-director, RISK FACTOR

Risk Factor is a cross-platform initiative that improves our ability to understand, assess and respond to the short and long-term risks we all share, helping us to live safer, healthier and more satisfying lives. The campaign entails screenings and television broadcasts of the documentary RISK FACTOR, along with the launch of a new mobile app RISK NAVIGATOR, a rich media website, a contest, and social media campaign.
