Registration open in 2022

Building a Climate Resilient Community Sector: Adapt and prepare your organisation and clients conference will illustrate why climate change is the social justice issue of our time, and that the time to step up is NOW!

Health and community service providers, governments, communities and emergency service providers have a shared responsibility to prepare, and keep safe, communities and individuals who may be more at risk from the impacts of climate change. Join us to find out more about developing and implementing strategies to prepare, adapt and respond to climate emergencies and disasters and create more climate resilient organisations, communities and clients.

Climate change is a threat to our health, livelihoods, homes, businesses and infrastructure. The impacts of climate change are not distributed equally, with the greatest burden being borne by people experiencing poverty, living with disabilities or chronic physical or mental health conditions, whose first language is not English as well as the very young and the elderly. Community sector organisations are not immune, and clients need to know they can access services whatever the weather.

What are the risks and impacts on organisations, service models, paid and volunteer staff or client groups? How do we prepare? How can we ensure that the best measures are in place to support our organisations, clients and communities? How can we best work with government, emergency service providers and sector partners to create a safer future?
