Interactive sessions: Exploring resilience across Indigo, Towong and Wodonga

Do you run programs or services that help people and environments cope with change, disruption or disaster?

Are you keen to share your experiences, learn from others and contribute to the bigger picture?

Join Paul Ryan, Director of the Australian Resilience Centre, and fellow resilience practitioners in one of three interactive sessions to uncover how resilience concepts are being put into practice in our region.

These free, interactive sessions are coming to a location near you:

  • Felltimber Community Centre, Wodonga, Thursday 9 June, 10 am to 12 noon.
  • Corryong Neighbourhood Centre, Wednesday 8 June, 1-3 pm.

Register now for one of these sessions to help understand and build resilience knowledge, skills and connections for the region!

Resilience thinking is widely recognised as an important tool for supporting people and communities to cope with change and disruption. However, the way resilience concepts are currently being used to inform policy, planning and practice at a local level is not well understood.

By bringing together key resilience practitioners from across the region, we aim to:

  • build our collective understanding of how resilience concepts are being used by different agencies across the region
  • identify practice commonalities and differences, and the benefits, opportunities and challenges these present
  • explore opportunities to extend and enhance the use of resilience concepts across the region.

Join us to help build resilience knowledge, skills and connections for the region!

Note the Indigo Shire session has already been held.
