Concerned about climate change and its influence on drought, bushfire and water availability?
Interested in regenerative agriculture or how the media is changing in your town?
Feeling forgotten and voiceless after the disasters that have hit you and your community recently?
2020 has been a difficult year. First the drought and summer bushfires, that tore through communities and blanketed our communities in smoke for months. And just as we got through the bushfires, COVID-19 struck, shutting down the economy.
The online Farmers for Climate Action Community Resilience forums presented information on a topic relevant to each local area, explored the impacts of climate change that communities are already facing and discussed strategies to help people communities through the next few weeks, months and years.
We are in the middle of a huge moment of disruption and we have the chance to envisage and create a better world on the other side of it. These forums also provided the community with tools to go out and create the community change they want to see.
Each forum began with some words from Wendy Cohen (CEO of Farmers for Climate Action), next was Dr Rob Gordon, followed up by a guest speaker on a topic particularly relevant to the local area, and finishing with Denis Ginnivan.
