ALA NATIONAL CONFERENCE: RESILIENT COMMUNITIES
Byron Region Community College, 9:00am
52nd Adult Learning Australia National Conference
Resilient communities withstand and respond creatively to adversity. Building community resilience means valuing respect and cooperation between all groups including Indigenous Australians, an economy that works for all, and living in harmony with the natural environment. This conference will explore ways that Lifelong Learning nurtures this resilience in the face of challenging times. This is also an opportunity to renew your personal resilience in a beautiful environment.
The conference will be hosted by Byron Region Community College, the 2011 winners of the national Adult Learning Innovative Program Award. As well as being blessed with an enviable location, Byron College is renowned for its innovative work in the development of programs for individuals, industries and communities in sustainability.
