About this Event

The Young and Resilient Research Centre at Western Sydney University welcomes you to Research Week at Western. For further events during this week, please visit the website at

This session will explore the unique strategies and methods our project teams have developed and deployed to investigate different phenomena that shape the experiences of resilience in contemporary society.

We will share the approaches, findings and outcomes from some of our most impactful projects undertaken with young people, non-profit organisations, big business, and governments in Australia and around the world.

Our work is organised around four inter-connecting themes include learning and work; participation and engagement; health and wellbeing; and places and platforms. These themes constitute our core Research Streams and are underpinned by the Intergener8 Living Lab – a co-research and co-design entity which brings young people together with community, industry and experts to collaboratively explore the relationship between young people, resilience and technology.
