Community Resilience as a context for learning - COVID-19

What is this?

The Community Resilience as a context for learning toolkit facilitates and supports young people and their communities to plan for, respond to and recover from adverse and challenging situations. The learning contexts can be adapted and based on the resilience challenges according to the young person’s school and community, geographic, social or climatic location or need.

Who is this for?

Primary and Secondary practitioners.

Covid 19

The Covid-19 learning journey is one of a series designed to support the learning and teaching of emergency and resilience education. This particular learning journey looks at the impact of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. It provides suggestions for activities to reflect upon the spread and impact of a pandemic flu and nurture the development of community readiness in young people.

Through the careful planning and embedding of Community Resilience by teachers, developing partnerships and making connections through STEM, Learning for Sustainability, Children’s Rights, Developing the Young Workforce or Eco Schools Scotland, young people and their communities will be equipped with the skills, capabilities and attributes to prepare for, respond to and recover from adverse and challenging situations relevant to their local context.
