It is important that we prepare ourselves for the unexpected by viewing our systems through an integrated resilience lens, and by staying connected to each other, even if we are unable to do so in person. We are always stronger together.

About Resilient Melbourne
Australia's first resilience strategy
Melbourne’s first resilience strategy was endorsed by the City of Melbourne’s Future Melbourne Committee on 17 May 2016. The first resilience strategy produced by any Australian city, and is the result of the work of more than 1,000 individuals from 230 organisations, Melbourne’s 32 local councils, and many Victorian Government departments.
People are at the heart of all cities
A resilient Melbourne will draw on the strengths of our diverse communities and geographies, to pursue our shared interests, embrace our differences and be stronger together. We will help communities prepare for change and whatever the future may hold. We will work today, tomorrow and together, towards a viable, sustainable, liveable and prosperous Melbourne
We're implementing strategy actions with partners across the community, academic and business sectors, as well as local and state government agencies.
By working together on these actions, partners will improve Melbourne’s collective resilience and will learn by doing.
