Learn how networked resilience grows, as severe weather intensifies.

 

The 20th century was a quiet weather period.1851's Black Thursday bushfires covered a quarter of what is now Victoria. Brisbane's highest recorded water level was during the January 1841 flood. In 1899 Cyclone Mahina hit Bathurst Bay with a storm surge variously reported to be 13 metres high.

 

As the gradual impacts of climate change accelerate into the 21st century, experts fear the quiet 20th century weather cycle is now reversing. The combination of accelerating climate change impacts and intensifying natural disasters is forcing community resilience onto the agenda. Adaptive human cultures, able to self-organise and continually innovate, can underpin a bright future. Networks foster this new culture of self-resilience and community engagement.

 

Since 2009, Green Cross Australia has catalysed six award winning resilience networks - portals that engage 250,000 users and multiple partners. Our call to action: governments need to enable the community to step up. Join the journey.
