Through the lens of climate change, resilience and collaborative communities, presentations investigate how collective bushfire strategies can strengthen our communities and environments.   

The program examines how changes in climate are impacting the capacity of both natural and human systems to cope with different fire seasons. It explores how to better prepare, respond and recover from bushfires.
