Public perceptions of weather-protection strategies for schools

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


There is a need to determine the potential of implementing protective strategies according to extreme weather events. There are varying guidelines and recommendations’ across a number of jurisdictions from a host of organisations for the protection of school children from extreme weather consequences in schools, yet there is a lack of research into the development of school weather policy for protection. The aim of this chapter is to showcase differing public perceptions on weather protection strategies. Public posts are detailed of themes relating to both support and criticism towards weather protection strategies. Overall, this chapter investigates a range of protective considerations for schools from extreme weather and the perceptions of appropriateness and feasibility by the public. The chapter considers strategies for future implementation to benefit and protect school communities.
