Disaster resilience: preparedness and recovery

Bushfires 2019/2020

Bushfire Acknowledgement

Green Cross Australia stands with the communities affected by the severe bushfires across Australia throughout 2019 and 2020. We would like to acknowledge the incredible efforts of firefighters, emergency services and communities who are still working hard to protect life and property throughout this ongoing crisis.


Green Cross Australia is here to help communities become more resilient and stronger into the future. Our role in education and empowerment supports the planning and rebuilding phase of extreme weather events such as the current bushfire crisis.


We work hard to support affected communities with safe and sustainable rebuilding activities. Our past program Build It Back Green supported rebuilding after the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires, sharing stories and knowledge on resilient and sustainable rebuilding of homes.


Rebuilding can be an overwhelming journey, but choosing resilient and sustainable options  doesn't have to be.

Green Cross Australia is seeking to connect and collaborate with stakeholders to support the empowerment of communities and resilient design processes in the rebuild phase. Understanding risk hazards, encouraging take up of resilience and sustainable investments that reduce cost of living and cost of ownership, and communicating actions taken that align with reducing insurance premiums.


We want to share these learnings to assist those communities affected by the bushfires and other extreme weather events to get back on their feet in the best possible way, and to make these opportunities available to other vulnerable places in Australia.


Please contact us at projects@greencrossaustralia.org should you wish to discuss working with Green Cross Australia on empowering Australian's to strengthen the disaster resilience of their homes, buildings and communities.
