Hosted by the Office of Energy and Climate Change

Aerial UTS Function Centre, Sydney

Monday 4th & Tuesday 5th of December 2023

The AdaptNSW 2023 Forum will connect adaptation professionals, and those interested in adaptation, to share ideas and tackle challenges together.

We have arrived in the climate age.


The seasons and rhythms of the natural world are changing in unfamiliar ways. Extreme events cascade and compound, leaving those affected in a constant state of flux. In this new era, change and uncertainty are the prevailing normal.


While there is loss and grief, we are also in a time of profound possibility to reimagine and find new ways of being in our world.


Join us at AdaptNSW 2023 Forum to acknowledge and embrace the uncertainty, collectively anchor ourselves, and chart a path forward together.
