This chapter explores the tools and methods used to include children’s voices in disaster risk management (DRM) that we found to be effective during the different stages of the CUIDAR project. Examples include creative and artistic methods such as drawing, participatory mapping, photovoice, active thinking and planning, storytelling, and video and performance art. In working with these tools, our aim was to inform and foster communication and informal learning, and give more value to the local and grounded knowledges of children and young people, their families and communities, suggesting practical ways of promoting intergenerational learning.
