Crisis, Catastrophe, Community: Rebuild, Renew, Recharge
15 – 16 Jun 2009
In times of physical, environmental and economic hardship, community organisations become more important than ever.
Providing a safety net for the injured, the grieving, the traumatised, the jobless, the homeless, the vulnerable; giving people a place to recover, to belong, to heal; providing help, support, hope, empathy and light relief.
As Australia reels from the shock of calamities from bushfires to floods to global economic turmoil, a new world is emerging. There will be challenges for many people, and for community organisations - but also opportunities.
