This paper addresses an Italian project intend to produce a Mobile Application to engage youth into the Civil Protection culture and system. Based on a literature review about new ways of teaching and learning through the use of IT tools, the project emerged from a simple question: can there be a modern way to interact with people aged between 14 and 19, which are known to be a difficult audience when referring to civil protection domain, in order to raise their awareness and to stimulate them to be part of it? In order to work on this issue a workshop with experts on civil protection school trainings or programs was organized. Although results from that activity are just the starting point for the realization of the final product, which has not been released yet, they can enlighten application's purposes and structure and give suggestions for further improvements.
