IO1 Breakthrough for Resilience ProgrammeTraining scheme

In this output, project partners will look at the conditions for and the tools to build resilience for people, for places (with a focus on the conservation of natural spaces), and for communities. It will draw on existing models and tools for resilient people, communities, and places. The project wants to compare the best practice for building resilience in people and for building resilient places as well as resilient communities. The goal is to be able to extend the learning for each tool to the other. The methodology for this output will, therefore, look at how the connections between people, place and community can create resilience, as well as how the tools and techniques used for resilience within each aspect can be used by the other aspects. 

For example, the principles of nature conservancy can be applied to people and community. This project seeks to find these tools in each area, catalogue them, discuss and explore how each tool can be used to promote resilience in the other areas and then create a facilitator-run programme to help people, places, and communities to overcome obstacles, ongoing stress and challenges. Partners would each work in their own areas of expertise: place, community, people. In most cases, the work overlaps where people, community and place are all involved in establishing resilience. 

This output will, therefore, focus on:

  • review of tools
  • research where appropriate
  • design of workshops
  • delivery

A document will be produced at the end covering the content, methodology and outputs of these workshops, including the experience of both facilitators and participants where relevant.

IO2 Resilience Programme Facilitator’s Guide – Toolkit

The Guide will contain everything a facilitator needs to be able to facilitate the BfR Programme both during the project. The Guide will include:

  • A summary of resilience in each of the area of focus,
  • Psychological impacts of vulnerability,
  • Group dynamics,
  • Techniques for group exercises,
  • Planning, 
  • Session plans with detailed information for facilitation.

TThe FG has transferability potential in that people or organisations who need to implement group-led programmes will have access to it and will be able to use in ongoing or future projects which would include people working in volunteering and community-based environments, but also people working in larger organisations, corporations and public bodies. To enable this, the Guide will be available on the project’s platform for anyone interested to download. The FG will be shared extensively with associated organisations and other stakeholders during the duration of the project, but particularly during key dissemination events such as Multiplier Events. The FG will be shared widely amongst the organisations that partners will be working with more closely during the project, especially those named in the ‘Project Description’ section and actively encouraged to use it.

IO3 Resilience Approaches Through Film-makingProject platform

This Intellectual output will examine resilience with each of the three aspects proposed in this project (people, place, community) by creating an online platform (this website) to host a series of videos that will give participants in the UK, Italy, Greece and Sweden a place to tell the experience of people using resilience tools and approaches. The platform will thus become web-based learning tool. Partners will create 24 films: each participating organisation will create 2 videos exploring each of the aspects of this project: people, place and community.

IO4 Breakthrough for Resilience HandbookManual guide

This output will be a document that will cover the experience of the project countries and their work on resilience and resilience tools. It will emphasise relevant outcomes from the Breakthrough for Resilience Programme, the Facilitators’ Guide and elements of the project platform with a focus on the 24 videos produced by partners to explore resilience theory. 

This output is meant to serve as a guide for people to understand resilience through the practical experience of the four partners and the lessons learned when looking at resilience and resilience tools used by people, places, and communities. The document is also expected to consider specific examples of participants of some of the groups of the BfR Programme that will take place in one of the four participating countries.

The output will include:

  • An overview of resilience and resilience tools
  • How these resilience tools relate to the main three areas of this project: people, places, and communities
  • The applicability of these tools to the other two areas
  • The experience of each partner organisation training facilitators
  • The experience of each partner organisation running 3 groups for resilience, each with a different emphasis
  • An overview of evaluation activities and learning outcomes of facilitators and participants
  • Three case studies from each partner, for a total of 12
  • Link to the Facilitator’s Guide
  • Main aspects of and links to the videos produced
