Stories of Community Connection and Resilience in a time of COVID

The Community Development Network of the ACT & Region (CDNet) is proud to present: One year on: Stories of Community Connection and Resilience in a time of COVID – an opportunity to hear inspiring stories of connection and resilience during the challenges we faced in 2020, from key speakers and Canberra-based community development workers.

Practitioners, volunteers, and students from community organisations and Government agencies are invited to join in an afternoon of insight and thought-provoking reflection.

Registrations close Friday 26 March
• Tickets: $20
• Concession tickets: $5

Key speaker, Andrew Leigh, MP, will share insights from Australia-wide community initiatives that successfully strengthened social connections and community resilience, based on his and co-author Nick Terrell’s book, Reconnected: A Community Builder’s Handbook.

Guest speaker, Nick Tebbey, CEO of Relationships Australia, will highlight data from their recent Neighbour Day evaluations that show the value of neighbourhood connections and key elements of communities, particularly in a Canberra context.
Canberra-based community development practitioners and community members will reflect on their experiences during COVID – successes and strengths, costs and challenges.

The forum will draw out key themes and their implications for what is needed now – as individuals, as teams and as organisations – and anticipate possibilities for collaboration, community and capacity building as well as alignment with community and government initiatives and consultations, such as ACT Wellbeing Indicators and the ACT Planning Review.
