Community Resilience Conference

Community Resilience Conference

Posted on behalf of Surrey Prepared
If you run a flood or resilience forum, or would like to set one up, join Surrey Prepared’s first free interactive seminar, for community and neighbourhood-active citizens. It's happening on Tuesday 27th September in Leatherhead.

Surrey Prepared aims to help Surrey community groups to work together to plan, prepare and prevent crisis in the face of emergency.

At this conference you can hear from expert speakers in resilience and risk management across a spectrum of fascinating sectors. Learn to combine local skills and services to effectively address all types of vulnerabilities across Surrey: from extreme weather to human crisis.

There will be:

  • workshops where you can discuss with others getting prepared in your community
  • speakers on future risks from extreme weather & adapting to climate change, how young people in Runnymede responded to 2014 flooding, and how the Environment Agency and partners are working together in Surrey
  • practical demonstrations of First Aid, networking tools in your neighbourhood (such as interests.me) and how to prepare for flooding
The venue at Leatherhead Leisure Centre is close to a train station and has a large car park, and there will be a modest lunch provided, thanks to funding from Surrey Community Foundation.

Register your interest today by emailing community.resilience@surreycc.gov.uk by 26th August. Please include the following information:

  • Your full name and preferred email address
  • The group/community/area you are from
  • Whether you would like to attend for the whole day (9.30-4pm) or just the morning or afternoon session
  • Whether you have any special requirements (access, diet etc)
The nice people from Surrey Prepared will reply to confirm your place. Thank you!
