Weathering Change: Community resilience in the face of climate change

Weathering Change was an action research project delivered by GCPH, Sniffer, greenspace scotland and Glasgow City Council (GCC).

Project partners explored how people and organisations in north Glasgow could work together to become more resilient in the face of climate change and other future challenges. Three neighbouring areas were chosen as the geographical focus of the project: Lambhill; Possilpark; and Milton. The project involved working with statutory and third sector organisations to identify community priorities, with climate change in mind. 

Key learning has been drawn from different aspects of the project, including community consultation, the approach taken to the delivery of the project, ways of working and reflections on how to build community resilience in the face of climate change. 

Recommendations offered are intended for: local and statutory organisations in north Glasgow working together to address identified challenges; practitioners or researchers undertaking similar work/projects; and policymakers interested in community resilience in the face of climate change.
