Disaster Resilience Education Resources

Disaster resilient young people:

- Recognise natural hazards in their local environment.
- Understand the harmful impacts that natural hazards have on people and places.
- Demonstrate strategies for staying safe, seeking help, and helping others in an emergency.
- Design solutions to local challenges related to hazards and emergencies.

Our Lessons for Years 7 & 8

We’ve partnered with the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience to launch a unit for Years 7 & 8, however the lessons could also work for Upper Primary: Years 5 & 6. The lessons help kids understand hazards, risks and how to avoid and/or limit the impact of potential disasters. 

AIDR aims to foster the growth of resilience in young people to better cope with disasters pre, during, and post the event.
