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 www.westernsydney.edu.au/researchweek

Big social and technological changes present both challenges and opportunities for young people and their communities. The newly formed Young and Resilient Research Centre embraces an integrated mode of research and development, education, training and enterprise to research and develop technology-based products, services and policies that strengthen the resilience of young people and their communities, enabling them to live well and participate fully in social and economic life.

Key to this is a unique conceptual and methodological approach to researching resilience with stakeholders, including non-profits, big business, government and young people themselves.

In this session we will share and discuss how we approach the concept of resilience in critical, dynamic and different ways across the research centre, as demonstrated in three current research projects.

Followed by a panel discussion with the presenters.
