QCOSS holiday closure and helpful contacts
We are very excited to announce the next stage of the QCOSS Movement for change – a series of Changing Lives, Changing Communities events in 13 locations across Queensland. These events will build on the knowledge gained and actions developed on the second day of the QCOSS State Conference - Movement for change that was held in Brisbane in May.
The Queensland Government is currently working with a range of industry sectors to complete their climate change Sector Adaptation Plans (SAPs). QCOSS has been engaged by the Department of Environment and Science to sit on the steering groups for each of these sectors, aiming to ensure Social Vulnerability is embedded throughout the process. The next Sector Adaptation Plan is the Industry and Resources SAP, which includes energy, mining and manufacturing and is being led by the University of Queensland’s Centre for Policy Futures. QCOSS would like to encourage professionals to join others from the Social Service sector and participate in this survey (see Industry and Resources Sector Adaptation Plan below).
Changes takes a lot of determination, and QCOSS has worked tirelessly across 2018 to advocate across a range of areas crucial to the wellbeing of every Queenslander.
There are currently no events.
