OzGREEN programs connect youth with communities to become leaders of innovative sustainable social change

Program Overview

Disaster resilient communities are those that work together to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters.   

 

Throughout our program participants:

  • Identify their local risks and threats
  • Voice their personal and community concerns 
  • Create a disaster resilient vision for their home and for their community
  • Brainstorm personal and community solutions that will assist disaster prevention, preparedness, response and recovery
  • Implement personal and community actions that build disaster resilience 

 

Our seven program workshops cover the following topics:

  • climate change;
  • food;
  • water;
  • energy;
  • infrastructure;
  • economy;
  • ecosystem; and
  • health resilience.

 

PROJECT BACKGROUND

Resilient Communities is based on OzGREEN's Living Communities program. 

Living Communities began in 2000 as a community education initiative of OzGREEN and Warringah Council to address stormwater pollution. Since then, OzGREEN has worked in partnership with organisations such as Sun Microsystems, AMP, AGSM, Allco, Dimension Data; Hurstville, Canterbury, Bankstown, Wollondilly Shire and Onkaparinga Councils; and trained over 200 community facilitators.
