Bec Taylor, Resilient East Coordinator
Topic - Water and Climate Resilience
As our climate changes and temperatures rise, our communities, assets and environment are needing to become more resilient. Water, and keeping it in our landscape, can play a significant role in achieving this.
Come and learn more about this important topic from Bec and find out about the work of Resilient East and what is being done in Adelaide to build more resilient communities.
Bec is a passionate individual who, with her work as the Coordinator of Resilient East, is striving toward a safe climate future. In this position, Bec has been building her appreciation for Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD), including the successful delivery of the Water Smart Campaign in 2021.
Prior to this position, Bec helped deliver numerous sustainability focused initiatives for the City of Adelaide including sustainability incentive schemes, native wildlife projects, heatwave preparedness programs and Water Sensitive City engagement. Bec has continued to grow her interest in Water Sensitive Cities by connecting and building a community in this space through the Fundamentals of Leadership for Water Sensitive Cities training course in 2021. Much of her work to-date has focussed on implementing organisation change both through bottom-up approaches and top-down policy changes, fostering meaningful change in the ever-evolving space of climate resilience.
Her mission, as a key contributor in the Water Sensitive Cities space, is to drive collaboration, creativity, and connectedness between disciplines to bring cohesion towards a safe climate future. She is committed to environmental sustainability and social justice, inclusivity, and bringing an element of fun to every challenge.
