One World Week 2012 educational resource: Bouncing Back and Beyond

'Bouncing Back and Beyond’, is an educational resource pack which explores the concept of ‘Resilience’ with young people, focusing on the local and global issues affecting their lives.

‘Bouncing Back and Beyond’ encourages youth groups to look at the factors contributing to challenges and adversity young people face, in particular why young people feel stressed and under pressure for reasons related to education, family circumstances, employment and migration. This resource also looks at the impact of drugs, bullying, crime, and depression on young people in Ireland and around the world. Most importantly, it looks at how young people and their communities react, adapt and respond to these challenges.
