On 19th May 2020, Farmers for Climate Action ran the online Bega and South Coast Community Resilience forum to support communities and people still grappling with the fallout of the summer bushfires.
Greg Mullins delivered the forum’s focused address, speaking about the impact of climate change on the intensity, severity and increasing frequency of bushfires. Other speakers include clinical psychologist Dr Rob Gordon, grassroots political expert Denis Ginnivan and Farmers for Climate Action CEO Wendy Cohen.
The aim of the forum was to provide attendees with an understanding of the mental impacts of disaster on the community. It also endeavoured to provide a pathway for the community to commence the long process of building resilience and recovery.
