Sydney’s Resilience Journey
Sydney is one of the most diverse cities in the world, with a population of nearly 5 million people and 200 vibrant cultures. While the metropolis is known for the beauty of its natural environment and outdoor lifestyle, Sydney is struggling to maintain its livability and equity during a time of rapid growth. Communities across Sydney have experienced a range of chronic stresses, including a lack of affordable housing, transport congestion, storms and flooding, bushfires, and cyber-attacks.
To become connected, inclusive, and resilient is a challenge that every major organization in Sydney must address together, to create a place of opportunity and well-being for all citizens.
Developed with input and insights from elders, community groups, government, and business representatives, the Resilient Sydney Strategy marks a new spirit of collaboration and connection across the city.
