Networking Event: Engaging Schools in Community Resilience (5 June 2015)

As a result of climate change, communities across Scotland are increasingly being affected by flooding and extreme weather events. It is crucial that our children and young people are fully engaged in community resilience programmes so they are able to contribute effectively to building more resilient communities.

This networking event will provide a valuable opportunity to unlock the opportunities within Curriculum for Excellence to develop this important area of learning through partnership approaches. Through stimulating dialogue and discussion, and sharing of interesting practice from schools, it will also help community resilience professionals understand effective ways they can engage with schools further to support this agenda.
