The interdisciplinary RbD team is committed to applied, participatory research with youth to address the complex and interrelated problems of disasters, climate change, and conflict. Our projects combine capacity building with a range of research methodologies (e.g., arts-based, participatory video, digital storytelling, surveys). We believe in the potential of young people as resilience leaders and change makers. In partnership with youth, we use creative process, innovation and research to explore, connect and seed new ideas and social change. Our goal is to develop and implement strategies, practices, and policies that improve local, national and international disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation.
