Approximately 70 delegates joined us at Celtic Park on Monday 31st October to identify ways resilience to natural disasters like flooding/severe weather/utility failure could be integrated into Curriculum for Excellence (CfE).
There were speakers from the Met Office, SSEN, Edinburgh City Council, Education Scotland, Highland Council and Glasgow Resilient Cities and a busy market place with around 15 stallholders representing organisations like Scottish Council for Development and Industry, Scottish Flood Forum, SEPA, Youthlink Scotland and Eco-Schools Scotland.
Some of the ideas discussed during the day included:
- Introduce the UN stop disasters game
- Set up a weather station
- Digi maps to compare past/present areas
- World of Work – contact outside agencies and ask them to share their knowledge and understanding and investigate practically
- Pupils to work cooperatively to solve a given scenario – flood prevention; Royal Academy of Engineering; STEM Ambassadors
