Healthy, Resilient and Sustainable Communities


The climate in the UK is changing. The NHS, public health, social care services and their communities need to understand the health and wellbeing implications of current and

projected changes and adapt services accordingly. An important component of this is ensuring the health and care system infrastructure (buildings, emergency services, vehicles and the supply chain for fuel, food and key products) is prepared for, and resilient to, severe weather events and

other disruptions.

Every place will have a different set of geographical, social, economic and demographic set of circumstances which means that a local approach is needed to support communities to thrive, be more sustainable, resilient and healthy in changing times and climates

Presentation Points:

  • Examine the threat changing weather patterns have on our communities
  • Our perception of risk posed by changing weather patterns
  • What makes a community resilient
  • How population health links in with resilience planning

Utilising Social Media during Serious Infrastructure Incidents


Serious incidents, such as derailments and major crashes, often cause explosions of discourse on social media. These conversations are massive, immediate and noisy, as people share news and misinformation, express their condolences, and begin discussing who might be to blame.

In this seminar, Josh Smith will present forthcoming research conducted by CASM for the Association of Train Operating Companies, using natural language processing to explore the digital aftermath of major transport incidents. This paper examines the response on Twitter to 5 historical derailments and crashes, and discusses using this data to gain real time situational awareness of the event on the ground, and what can be learned from the continuing conversation around the incident.

Presentation Points:

  • Sifting through the noise – how to quickly identify eyewitnesses after an incident.
  • Changing conversations – The distinct stages of public conversation about an incident.
  • The spread of misinformation and misreporting on Twitter
  • New voices and forms of media present in these reactions.
