Building a Movement: Community Development and Community Resilience in Response to Extreme Events (CR2EE)

Whilst community resilience is a topic that has been at the forefront of recent Scottish Government strategy and policy, there remains a gap in identifying what community resilience is currently enacted (particularly in Scotland), and how such experiences can be used to encourage further development of community resilience. This research project, funded by the National Centre for Resilience (Ref: NCRR1819-004) aims to address this gap. We believe creating a network of people interested in community resilience will be the first step in building and feeding into a movement(s) around creating a fairer, healthier and more ecologically sustainable Scotland.

The project is led by Dr Sandra Engstrom from Social Sciences and Dr Tony Robertson from Biological and Environmental Sciences, in collaboration with Dr Fiona Millar (Research and Innovation Services), Paul Docherty (Arts and Humanities) and Dr Andy Ruck (Department of Ecology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Uppsala). It involved two knowledge exchange workshops, qualitative interviews and an art exhibit.
