A prolonged and global pandemic, compounded by concurrent and catastrophic severe weather events (wide area wild-fires across continents, extreme heatwaves or fatal flood events), together with new and emerging risks to humanity have generated an urgency to ensure the ‘whole-systems’ resilience of public, privates, voluntary organisations, resilience partnerships and communities alike.
In this, the last webinar in our series, we again bring together experts from a global community of emergency managers to reflect on their learning from recent events, consider the main challenges ahead and discuss what this all means for the emergency management profession;
- What is your stand-out lesson from your experiences of recent disasters (e.g. Covid-19, wildfires, heatwaves, floods)?
- What do these lessons mean for the future of the emergency management profession? Are we equipped to deal with future threats?
- What is the contribution of Emergency Management to building societal resilience?
Each member of the panel will share their own perspectives on these questions, before a facilitated discussion and interactive Q&A with the audience, who will also be invited to offer observations from their own experiences and learning.
The session will be hosted by The International Emergency Managers Society (TIEMS) in collaboration with the University of Manchester (UoM), the UK Emergency Planning Society (EPS) and the Resilient Cities Network (RCN), with discussions being facilitated by Harald Dragar / Kyle King (TIEMS & CBI) and Professor Duncan Shaw / David Powell (UoM).
