Grenfell Curriculum

Project overview

One of the worst disasters in modern British history, claiming 72 lives, the Grenfell Tower fire has raised pressing questions about humans, technology, and social justice. Human-made disasters such as Grenfell have significant economic and societal impacts, but how we could teach about them in schools has received minimal attention. This raises an important question: How can education contribute to creating a society with disaster justice, particularly for disasters caused by human error and mistakes? In this study, we (a) explore the links and intersections between disaster justice and education for social justice and (b) present initial findings from a community-based participatory research project with the Grenfell Tower community, including survivors, bereaved families and local residents.
