United we stand: youth perspectives on developing resilience to drought in South Africa [Motion Picture]

Research output: Non-textual outputDigital or Visual Products


The expertise of young people in South Africa in relation to coping with the physical and mental impacts of drought was harnessed for this co-productive research project. The overarching aim of the research project was to find the best ways to help young people communicate their resilient responses to drought, and find ways that adults, governments and indeed young people themselves could ‘change the odds’ which put young people at risk. After a series of workshops facilitated by postgraduate students from Pretoria and community facilitators from the UK, a group of young people in Leandra developed their own ideas and gathered information from older people in the community. This was used to generate important responses to drought and they have co-produced a film and policy document.
