Community bonds and networks are integral to community resilience in the face of climate disasters. In this webinar hosted by the National Landcare Network and Farmers for Climate Action, we explore how networks respond to catastrophe, be it saving lives, maintaining mental health or reviving biodiversity.
In this webinar we shine the spotlight on the flood-ravaged Northern Rivers to explore how networks can both strengthen and fracture during times of climate crisis. We hear from clinical psychologist Dr Rob Gordon, who has worked in disaster recovery since Ash Wednesday in 1983, about the recovery journey. We also hear from Landcare Coordinator Emma Stone who is deep in the early flood recovery stage in the Northern Rivers, activating her local Landcare community and forging partnerships to build resilience.
This webinar explores how building place-based community networks, such as Landcare and Farmers For Climate Action groups, can help prepare surge capacity for times of disaster. We also explore how self-care, community care and connection to country can improve mental health outcomes on the long road to recovery.
