In December 2011 Volunteering Qld, as a part of the Step Up Program, held the Natural Disaster Resilience Leadership Project in Brisbane. Over 50 participants attended this event in order to learn more about the role of community leaders in building resilience and disaster management in Queensland. During this 6 day event participants took part in capacity building workshops on leadership, understanding community resilience, the emotional impacts of disasters and designing projects to trigger change. Participants also listened to presentations from guest speakers representing Emergency Management Queensland, Queensland Police Service, the Red Cross, Former Victorian Emergency Services Commissioner, a grassroots leader from Kingslake as well as presenters from Volunteering Qld's other Step Up projects.
This event was documented in order to capture and share the learnings and experiences of the participants as well as some of the key information shared by the speakers. Volunteering Qld hopes this film will act as a catalyst for resilience conversations throughout Queensland and beyond. A special thanks to the Digital CinematiX HD crew for their hard work in the creation of this piece.
