Our climate is changing and communities across Scotland are becoming increasingly affected by extreme weather events and flooding which can block roads, destroy homes and lead to loss of power for thousands of people.
Ensure the children and young people in your class know what to do if there is severe weather, utility failure, flooding or pandemics by reading this hot off the press Community Resilience and Curriculum for Excellence flyer!
Community resilience is about communities and individuals using their collective resources and skills to help themselves prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies.
Discover ways to link learning to Scotland’s change in climate and how to embed community resilience within learning across different curriculum areas.
