Youth voice and agency in recovery webinar
Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience, Australia, June, 2020
Children and young people have unique experiences, needs, and contributions to make when it comes to bushfire recovery. In this webinar, find out more about how children and youth are impacted, what support they may need, and hear directly about how young people are leading recovery in their communities.
Understand the impacts of disasters on children and youth with insights from Margaret Nixon of the Australian Child and Adolescent Trauma Loss and Grief Network and Annabel Axford of Emerging Minds. Brodie Gaudion from ‘The Sanctuary’ Mallacoota Youth Group also shares her experience of establishing a youth-led community association and drop-in service after the East Gippsland bushfires.
