What is project BRIC?
Building Resilience in Communities (BRIC) is a two-year cross channel Interreg funded project running until June 2023. We are working with eight organisations in France and England. Our key aim is to build resilience in local communities who are at risk of flooding. Particularly focusing on local areas of deprivation, we will be supporting vulnerable groups such as the elderly and those furthest from the labour market.
BRIC Sustainable Development Goals
BRIC aligns with nine of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The goals were set out in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly with the intention of achieving them by 2030. They are a call to action for everyone to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection, all of which the BRIC project embodies in its delivery model.
BRIC is an exciting 2-year, €3.4m project which has secured 70% European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) funding from the Interreg France-Channel-England programme. Rather than being an environmental project, it is addressing the issue of flood management from a social innovation perspective.
