I’ve lived in the mountains for 24 years and I feel incredibly grateful to be part of this amazing community, living in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. After spending a decade as a leader within the Blue Mountains Ukulele Group, I felt drawn to the fight for climate action and building local resilience to the impacts of climate change.
As part of founding Resilient Blue Mountains I was thrilled to be asked by Blue Mountains City Council if we would partner with them on turning our thought bubble of a “Festival of Resilience” into a reality. I am hoping the Festival will be embraced by the community as a Festival platform and ‘concept’ to create and share events that connect and inspire us to live in ways that restore and protect our beautiful environment and community for many generations to come.
