Looking Beyond Disaster is a framework for bringing young people together around the theme of natural disasters and the impacts they have on communities. 

Established initially in Christchurch, New Zealand , it has been a multi-day forum series maintained and developed by the alumni of previous forums and others who recognise the value of the contributions young people can make to their communities as well as the value of international connections.

Below are a few photos and summary videos from some of the LBD forums that have been held. Each of these videos were made by participant-facilitators Salvador Cantellano and Owen Novello of Digital CinematiX and Tal Fitzpatrick of Volunteering Queensland.
