Join fellow Transitioners and Resilience-Builders from around New England to discuss the resilience of our region as a whole.
Many Transitioners recognize our profound interconnection with each other, and our important moral obligations to neighboring communities. None of us is resilient until all of us are. We recognize that deeper resilience would engage the whole region as our communities are nested in larger systems of culture, climate and exchange. Now many are wondering: what would region-wide resilience look like?
The gathering on March 15 will allow for a lot of open-ended discussion, so that we can consider open and important questions, such as:
- Why are we focusing on region-wide resilience?
- What are the key dimensions of region-wide resilience?
- Is New England the right region to consider?
At the event we will also spend time "workshopping" potential action ideas that are percolating among this network. These are ideas that would invite involvement from the region as a whole, and/or, would have a regional impact. Sponsored by Transition Portland and the Resilience Hub, Transition Keene Task Force, Transition Montpelier, Transition Newburyport, and the Jamaica Plain New Economy Transition.
Coffee, light breakfast, and lunch will be provided. In-home hospitality in Keene is available.
The event is free but registration is required. Donations will be requested to help defray the costs. Use the following link to obtain further information and to register.
