A not for profit organisation which aims to create local resilience to the diverse impacts of the climate emergency are seeking volunteer team leaders.
According to Resilient Byron co-organiser Jean S Renouf, their primary aims are to ‘ensure Byron Shire becomes resilient in times of disaster and regenerative in the face of the climate emergency; help communities and neighbourhoods develop their capacity to prepare for, respond and recover from disasters and deepen local community connections and the local financial ecosystem’.
Renouf said, ‘We have made substantial progress in establishing community and neighbourhood resilience groups with team leaders in place’.
‘We are now seeking team leaders who can help to develop resilience in the key thematic areas of risk associated with the climate emergency including food security, water security, energy security, housing security, health and wellbeing, and safety.
‘Initially this role will focus on building knowledge of existing resources across Byron Shire, and will then expand to include attracting additional volunteers and leading initiatives to improve resilience in the specific area of risk’.
Part of the key responsibilities include researching and building a database of existing organisations and initiatives across the Shire.
