When systems buckle under enormous stress, time and again we have seen communities rise when institutions flounder . In this session, we learn from a candid conversation between Dee and a panel of brilliant thinkers and ‘doers’ on just what it takes to gain traction and respond with communities, in communities before, during and after crisis hits.
Sector organisations impacted by the Black Summer Bushfires, major flood events and COVID-19 will share stories and reflections on what works, what doesn’t and what we need to do next.
