Resilience & Recovery Handbook

Arts & Nature nourishment for disastrous times

Ordinary Actions for (not so) ordinary times

It really has been a tough few years here in the Blue Mountains – we’ve experienced everything from drought, bushfires and floods to a worldwide pandemic! Living with natural disasters and climate change takes its toll, let alone the financial, social and emotional impact of these events in our individual lives and on our health. It’s a lot. It’s exhausting. And still we go on! More than ever it is vital that we cultivate our personal and collective resilience by focusing on small, time-honoured, everyday actions.

This handbook celebrates our resilience, creativity and care in the face of disastrous times, and acknowledges the constant cycle of bushfire risk and recovery we live with here in the beautiful Blue Mountains.


This handbook has been created by Springwood Neighbourhood Centre Co- operative Ltd under the Resilience and Recovery Hub Project. This is a Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund project proudly funded by the Australian and NSW Governments.
