Conversation Starters Survey– Strengthening communities through local knowledge

Survey will be open for a period of 6 weeks, and open on Friday 8th May 2020 and close on Friday 19th June 2020.

Residents of Byfield, Cawarral, Joskeleigh, Keppel Sands, Marlborough, Mt Chalmers and Ogmore are encouraged to complete this short survey for the purpose of Livingstone Shire Council developing a greater understanding of the community’s priorities in relation to disasters.

What is a Disaster? A disaster is defined as a serious disruption in a community, caused by the impact of an event that requires a significant coordinated response by the State and other entities to help the community recover from the disruption.

In partnership with Livingstone Shire Council, through its Community Development and Engagement Team, communities are encouraged to co-design mutually beneficial small scale projects that increase adaptive capacity and strengthen community resilience.

Adaptive capacity is the ability to be responsive, and refers to the social and technical skills and strategies of individuals, groups and organisations directed towards responding to change. Such resources can be physical or material and found in the way a community is organised.

Resilience is the ability of individuals, organisations, businesses and communities to cope with a sudden impact, crisis / disaster and long-term stresses, to restore as quickly as possible their ability to function and their capacity to act. This involves planning for near-term recovery and strategies to address cumulative impacts from disruptions and long-term resilience if another disaster event occurs.

Data from this survey will inform future engagement strategies and support the development and delivery of a community project.
