National Conference Programme and Workshop information

We’re looking forward to a week of discussion and development with our Conference and Workshops on 31st- 3rd June.

Much like the practitioners and academics who dedicate so much time and energy to it, the discipline of emergency management never stands still. The overarching theme this year recognises how critical  forward planning and innovative thinking is to civil defence and emergency management.

Societies, technologies and communities continually evolve and change, as do the hazards that they face. Civil defence and emergency management must plan and be ready for, these changes. Conference speakers were chosen for their ability to provide relevant insights, knowledge, or approaches to emergency management and get attendees thinking differently about what they do.
