Resilience workshop for neighbourhood action plan

Published: 24 October 2022

Eurobodalla Council invites the community to attend a workshop to develop new approaches and tools to better prevent, prepare, respond and recover from disaster events.

Council moves on to the next stage of The South East NSW Resilience Blueprint, which involves developing neighbourhood action plans.

Community recovery officer Linda Wilton said Resilient Neighbourhood Action Plans will build on our local strengths and recognise that resilience is both everyone’s responsibility and an opportunity to be stronger by working together.

“The workshop will teach us how to use the Resilience Blueprint to develop our own neighbourhood action plans,” Ms Wilton said.

“It’s important to learn how we can prevent and prepare today, to be able to better respond and recover to challenges in future.”

The Resilience Blueprint provides risk data, tools and strategies which will be explained at the workshop.

“A digital map will be part the workshop where participants can see the impact of disasters in the area, giving them a unique perspective of how events occur and how you and your neighbours can prepare and respond to them,” Ms Wilton said.

“Together we can develop practical solutions on how to respond to disasters, such as floods and fires and long-term stressors, such as drought.

“As disaster events become more frequent, intense and prolonged, neighbour preparedness is more important than ever.”

The workshop will take place at Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre, Moruya, on Thursday 10 November 2022.

Afternoon tea will be provided at 4.45pm followed with the workshop starting at 5.00pm.  A light meal will be served around 6.45pm.

Ms Wilton said everyone was welcome but places were limited. Bookings were essential via Eventbrite.

The Resilience Blueprint for South East NSW is managed by the Canberra Region Joint Organisation.

The Resilience Blueprint works with all levels of government, emergency services, researchers, risk analysts, businesses and communities to improve the way our region plans for and responds to natural disasters.
