Survivalism is a social movement of people or groups (called survivalists or preppers) who prepare for emergencies, including natural disasters. They often prepare for international or global catastrophe.
Survivalism may be focused on preparing for a personal emergency, such as job loss or being stranded in the wild or under bad weather conditions.
