The Australian Red Cross, in partnership with Adelaide’s Resilient South councils, have launched an exciting new project to help communities prepare for intensified extreme events and a changing climate.
The Resilient South Climate Ready Communities Project is empowering people to understand the risks they currently face, the way these are changing, and what they can do to build their resilience.
The project is calling for Climate Ready Champions. These community champions will be supported by Red Cross through free training about how you can support others take action to become ‘climate ready’, practical guidance to deliver activities and events in Adelaide’s south, and the opportunity to get involved in Red Cross’ emergency response and preparedness activities.
Red Cross has developed Climate-Ready Communities: A Guide to Getting Started to support communities to have their own conversation about how the things they value will be impacted by climate change, and what they can do to continue to thrive.
If you’re in Southern Adelaide and you think your community needs to get ready as a community for changes in our climate, you can join the group of Climate Ready Champions.
Climate Ready Champions are trained to help people understand how the things we value may be affected by our changing climate, and explore what we can do to take action.
You will be supported by Red Cross through:
- Free training about how you can support others to become ‘climate ready’
- Practical guidance to deliver activities and events in Adelaide’s south
- Opportunity to get involved in Red Cross’ emergency response and preparedness activities
