CUIDAR (Cultures of Disaster Resilience Among Children and Young People) is a European wide project aiming to enhance the resilience of children, young people and urban societies to disasters and enable disaster responders to meet children and young people’s needs more effectively. It is funded by the European Union and coordinated by Lancaster University (UK), with the collaboration of the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon (Portugal), the Open University of Catalonia (Spain), the University of Thessaly (Greece) and Save the Children, Italy and UK.
This final event will show the project’s main findings to an international audience of decision-makers, practitioners and researchers. Participants will experience and discuss the main outcome from the project - a child-centred disaster management framework for Europe, which will help those working in the field engage with children and young people in emergencies. Children and young people who participated in CUIDAR’s activities will be actively engaged during the event.
Professor Lori Peek, Director Natural Hazards Center, University of Colorado-Boulder, USA and author with Alice Fothergill of Children of Katrina
