About The Program

Every business leader, owner and operator across Kangaroo Island is invited to participate in the co-design of a new risk reduction capability tool – to help consolidate knowledge from lived experience and prepare for future disruptions and disasters.

Funded by the South Australian Fire and Emergency Services Commission (SAFECOM), this project is a collaboration between C2C and the South Australian Department for Industry, Innovation and Science (DIIS).

We focus on building people’s capabilities, given people are the foundation for building resilience.

The project aims to:

  • Support a new culture of risk understanding, risk reduction and resilience;
  • Develop a co-designed tool that’s relevant and inclusive to the Kangaroo Island business community;
  • Integrate a micro-learning platform for business, because small steps drive big change.

Working group sessions are now underway, and in-community workshops will occur from May until September 2022.

Participating will allow you to:

  • Participate in the co-design of a purpose-built tool for business owners and operators across the KI community
  • Connect with like-minded businesses who are serious about resilience and expand your community and business networks;
  • Participate in expert lead workshops to further understand risk reduction and resilience;
  • Have the option to be part of developing micro-learning modules sharing lived experience;
  • Free access to the tool once developed.

Get Involved

We are looking for business case studies and early testers for the micro-learning modules.

Those insightful words from Hellen Keller have always resonated with me: Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. Whether in business or personal life, engagement and collaboration are key to achieving amazing initiatives and realising our biggest dreams.
