Webinar:  AFL- inspired look at what resilience is and how we can work together to achieve it

Date: Thursday 7 October
Time: 12.00pm (AEST)
Cost: Members Free, Non-members $50
Presenter: Councillor Jess Miller

Jess will take us through not only the top-level thinking about resilience, but what opportunities it offers those of us working across open space, recreation and city-making. The presentation will cut through the doom, gloom and bad news to show how councils can and are working with state governments, the private sector and the community to bring about practical and positive change. We’ll also touch on new ways of thinking about resilience funding and the opportunities that may offer to shift thinking about the value of ‘living’ and ‘resilient’ infrastructure. 


    Councillor Jess Miller

    Councillor, City of Sydney Council

    Jess was elected to the City of Sydney Council as part of the Clover Moore Independent team in 2016.

    Part of her motivation for being on council was to help ensure that the views of younger people were being represented in local Government (especially with regard to the 24 hour economy). She also wanted to help the City to set a global example of how to deal with the changing climate.

    Jess’s key areas of expertise are in environmental systems, specifically urban ecology and urban forestry, and local food systems. She is an advocate for a slow city with lots of active and public transport, character, community, sport, colour and creativity.
