Children, Flood and Urban Resilience

Understanding children and young people's experience and agency in the flood recovery process

The Hull Floods Projects ran from October 2007 to June 2011 and this website has now been archived as a record of the research and its impacts.

Relatively few accounts of flooding consider the perspectives of children and young people and the role they might play in building future resilience. Nevertheless, a vital part of building resilience should take account of children's perspectives since they are not only community members, but also citizens of the future. Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, the Environment Agency and Hull City Council, this project engages with children and young people in Hull about their experiences of flood, flood recovery and the implications for future resilience.
