Spotlight on our Marcia resilience at seminar at CQUni

COMMUNITY resilience and sustainability will be the focus of a seminar to be held in Rockhampton this week.

In the wake of Cyclone Marcia, business people, community representatives and interested residents are encouraged to attend the event, hosted by CQUniversity Australia.

The community recovery and resilience seminar on Thursday will bring together experts and the community to discuss recent events, future challenges and opportunities to make the community stronger and more resilient in the future.

An industry and expert planning and discussion forum from 1pm to 4.30pm will reflect on the consequences and impacts of natural disasters for business and the community.

It will be followed by the main community recovery and resilience public forum and Q&A session from 5pm to 7pm.

This will bring together academic, industry and emergency service experts to discuss community preparedness and management of natural disasters.

Both sessions will be held in the conference room of the Central Queensland Innovation and Research Precinct at Ibis Ave, across the highway from CQUniversity Rockhampton North campus.
