  Lis Bastian, Senior Lead of Blue Mountains City Council’s Planetary Health Initiative will speak about their new grant-funded program: A Bioregional Collaboration for Planetary Health. She will discuss the critical importance of collaboration for systemic change to reduce the risk of future disasters and how the Initiative is establishing local Communications Platforms to connect communities and agencies, and to share solutions to strengthen community and restore the health of the planet. The Initiative will also be building a water demonstration site at the former Katoomba Golf Course and training the community to manage water to reduce the risks associated with fire, flood and heatwave.
