    PIA Monthly Roundtable - Resilience Thinking and Practice
    Location: Hobart

    ****EVENT POSTPONED UNTIL SEPTEMBER (exact date to be advised)****

    Resilience thinking and practice: What's in it for planners?

    Join Dr Michael Lockwood, Environmental Social Scientist and Dr Julie Davidson, Senior Research Fellow from the University of Tasmania to explore how resilience thinking can influence planners in setting direction, designing processes, and reforming governance in the context of current institutions, processes and practices.

    The concept of ‘resilience’ emerged out of ecology in the early 1970s and has since been adopted and adapted by other disciplines, including social scientists and planners.

    Resilience describes the amount of change complex adaptive systems can undergo while still retaining structure and function and capacity for self-organisation and adaptation.

    Resilience thinking is generating insights into dynamic complex adaptive systems such as cities and multi-use landscapes and is particularly useful for understanding systems that are faced with, for example, climate change impacts, changes in global trading regimes, or catastrophe.
