RESILIENCE THROUGH SHARED INFORMATION AND COLLABORATIVE ENGAGEMENT

About this Event

CIFAL Newcastle – a United Nations affiliated training centre would like to use this opportunity to invite you to a free workshop to explore solutions around challenges, barriers and problems linked to public information and engagement prior to, during and after emergencies.

This is a unique collaborative opportunity to collectively identify and map relevant partners to support public information goals and work through recently identified challenges regarding resilience during emergencies.

Dr Richard Thornton - Chief Executive Officer of the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC will be a keynote speaker at this event.

The aim of the workshop includes:

  1. reviewing current processes adopted by emergency services, local authorities and organisations for sharing information and public engagement;
  2. determining the extent to which current processes facilitate effective public information and engagement;
  3. exploring possible solutions that include training, research and collaborative partnerships to address the identified challenges.

This event is is best suited for policy makers, community leaders, local council officials, emergency management professionals and academics.

Morning tea and lunch will be provided.
