Event description

Description

Young Scot and the Scottish Government are working in partnership to work with a group of young people to help develop new communication material on personal and community resilience which will result in the development of specific guidance materials being produced.

We are looking to work with a group of young people from the ages of 15 – 20 years old as ‘Content Advisors’ to gather and share their views, develop their skills and work in collaboration with Young Scot and the Scottish Government. Our Content Advisors will ensure that the Young Scot Digital Information team have a clear understanding and insight into how young people understand the key messages related to the Scottish Government resilience programme.

Young Scot will engage with the ‘Content Advisors’ to gather views and insight on their understanding, as well as potential information topics, language, tone & format of new content.

What is Resilience?

What would you do if you were out with friends and there was a heavy snow weather warning? How would you respond if a friend you were with suddenly stopped breathing? What would you do if an email from your bank arrived asking you to confirm your details? Or what if The Walking Dead actually became reality?! Okay…that’s maybe less likely!

Resilience is about how you respond in the event of something unexpected happening by being ready in advance so you are better prepared. It is knowing what action to take to reduce the impact or consequences of an emergency situation.

This will involve initially sharing your experiences, views and ideas by taking part in a workshop delivered by Young Scot at our office with the potential of working with Communications and Marketing staff in both organisations to develop a campaign which might include information pages, videos, social media including Instagram, Snapchat etc
