This project is producing a range of outputs which aim to enable children and young people to engage actively with policymakers and practitioners working in the area of emergency planning and management.
These include the creation of Children and Young People’s Flood Manifestos which present their ideas for change around flood risk management and which were distributed at stakeholder events in the summer of 2015. We have also compiled the ‘Pledges’ that were made by the stakeholders who attended those events and were asked to commit to actions that they would take in response to the Flood Manifestos.
The flood project: a children’s manifesto for change, is a film which highlights the children’s flood experiences and their involvement in this project as well as their ideas for action in the future.
