Building European Communities’ Resilience and Social Capital
BuildERS will increase the social resilience capital of European communities and citizens. It will do this genuinely co-designing processes and tools with citizens, first-responder organisations and tool developers. The project will incorporate an inclusive and interactive research and analysis process, where the results are not derived ‘top-down’ but through a ‘bottom-top’ dynamic interaction.
BuildERS consortium comprises high-profile academia, research and technology organisations, first-responder organisations and private companies. The ideology is that by focusing on the most vulnerable groups, at the most concrete level, the overall resilience of the society and communities is enhanced.
