11b Amplifying recovery and resilience through building Blue Shield networks

Presentation Description

Blue Shield Australia member organisations (including the Australian Society of Archivists) have been involved in a number of natural disaster recovery advocacy and co-ordination activities. BSA aims to raise awareness of the value of Australian cultural heritage and the need for its protection against threats of all kinds. Since the catastrophic bushfires and damaging storms and severe weather of 2020, the BSA committee has been co-ordinating updates, links to useful recovery resources and working with many partners and organisations to assist in recovery efforts relating to cultural institutions. Hear more about BSA, latest advocacy efforts and stories from the recent bushfires. Learn about the key ways you can prepare personally and professionally for the inevitable future that will see severe weather events becoming more frequent, and how you can contribute meaningfully in disaster planning and recovery at this session.
