The Flood Project film is online

We have just completed this six minute short, "The Flood Project" - commissioned by Lancaster University and Save The Children. The children who worked on this project have collaborated with the research team and Whitewood & Fleming to produce a six minute film about their experiences and what needs to be done to improve recovery for people who are flooded in the future. The film highlights the need for the voices of young people to be included in Disaster Planning, we hope it helps make a difference. You can watch it online on the Lancaster Uni website, just click the link on the next page.

Children are often ignored in disaster related planning and policy development. Consequently this collaborative project between Lancaster University and Save the Children is researching children and young people’s experiences of the UK winter 2013/14 floods. The team used creative arts methods to understand the children’s experiences and communicate their ideas to policy. Our short film documents the project.
