Webinar: Recovery: How we can create a better, brighter future after a crisis

Date: 03 Sep 2021

Our Community members are invited to a special FREE webinar presented by Andrew Wear, the author of Recovery: How we can create a better, brighter future after a crisis.

In times of crisis lies opportunity. Recovery shows us how we can build back better after COVID-19.

We have recovered from many crises in the past: war, depression, pandemic, natural disaster. Often, we’ve bounced back to create an even better future. The Spanish Flu was followed by the economic prosperity of the Roaring Twenties. In the decades following World War II, the German economy grew to the world’s most advanced. In the United States, social and economic policies responding to the Great Depression laid the foundations for twentieth-century prosperity.

As we contemplate recovery from the COVID-19 health and economic crisis while confronting the climate emergency, what can we learn from other recoveries? Through interviews with experts, policymakers and community leaders, this book examines past recoveries and investigates implications for the future. It explores what went well, what we should do differently and what the lessons might be for the recovery ahead of us.

With governments prepared to lead, listen to experts and involve communities in decision-making, not only is a successful recovery possible – we can also choose to re-evaluate many of the things we thought were fixed. We have an opportunity to build back better.

This Webinar took place live on:

Friday, September 3, 2021 from 1pm to 2pm AEST. You can watch the recording below.

What's a Webinar?

A Webinar is a seminar that's conducted over the internet.

Viewers watch a remote presentation on their own screens at a set broadcast time and can participate by typing and submitting questions they would like answered by the presenter.

Our Webinars are recorded and a copy is sent out to every registrant by default. So if you aren't able to watch the Webinar live at the scheduled time, you don't need to do anything - we'll send you a copy you can watch at your own pace on your own screen.

Why Webinars work

You'll learn at a time that suits you
If you can't join us at the scheduled time, we will automatically send you a recording you can watch at your own pace.

You can ask your burning questions
Our Webinars include a 45-minute presentation followed by a 15 minute interactive Q&A session where you'll call the shots. You do so by typing your questions during the Webinar.

You don't need an IT degree
There's no complicated software involved. You just need a reliable internet connection to participate. We'll email you instructions at each step too. Simple!
