COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL SAFETY

COURSE

All children have the right to get educated in a safe school

ALL children have the right to go to school and that it is a safe place. Children spend up to 50% of their time awake in schools and many schools, all over the world, are located in areas of high risk for various natural hazards; such as earthquakes, landslides, floods etc.

What

To raise the safety of the children and teachers while also building their capacities on how to identify disaster risks and manage these (mitigate and prepare), the Comprehensive School Safety Framework (CSSF) was developed. It provides a comprehensive approach to reducing risks from all hazards to the education sector by addressing three pillars of school safety:

1. Safe Learning Facilities

2. School Disaster Management

3. Risk Reduction and Resilience Education

How

This course goes through what the CSSF is, the three pillars and provides concrete examples from how to implement it. The widea team have worked with school safety for many years and uses fun and engaging methodology.

For who

Anyone working within development or humanitarian aid, national and international staff in education sector, disaster management etc.

Length: widea recommends that this course is done for a minimum of 3 days, preferably 4-5 days.

COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL SAFETY

COURSE

Disasters do not discriminate and neither should we.

Disasters impact women, men, boys,  girls and people of the third gender differently. Therefore everyone needs to participate meaningfully in disaster risk management. To understand the local risks in order to mitigate and prepare for these, while taking in consideration for each gender needs. 

 

What

This course will build your capacities in gender and how to integrate it into your disaster risk reduction projects. We start from the concept of gender, via DRR tools and then go into the adaptation of gender in DRR.

How

Through interactive dialogue, practical exercises and relatable examples the facilitators ensure that no one is left behind and that the participants are challenged of gender norms in a safe environment.

For who

Any practitioner (national/international) in disaster risk reduction/resilience or climate change adaptation projects.

Length: 3 day as a minimum but preferably 4-5 days depending on pre-knowledge of DRR tools.
