What aspects of contemporary Melbourne, and its history and possible futures, are shaping how resilience is being or could be applied? What lessons about resilience could Melbourne offer the rest of the world?
In this panel and discussion, practitioners working on aspects of resilience in Melbourne combine with leading researchers to bring different conversations together explore the above questions and what “Resilience, Melbourne-style” is and could be.
