Resilience Reimagined

Registrations are now open for the 2023 Australian Disaster Resilience conference under the theme 'Resilience Reimagined'.

It has never been more important to reduce disaster risk and build resilience. With science telling us that disasters will become more frequent and severe due to climate change, the urgency of this work is clear. We must reimagine the future if we are to create the change we need. Our partnerships, programs, actions and ideas all play an important part in creating and safeguarding the world we want to live in now, and the world we want to pass on to future generations.

The 2023 Australian Disaster Resilience Conference will explore what is possible by coming together to reimagine resilience. The conference will prioritise creative and collaborative approaches being taken across our country, and enable us to hear from fresh voices that propose new, innovative ways to foster the disaster resilience our nation needs to thrive in the complex future we know is ahead of us.
