Further info: Six Eco-resilience workshops have been held in 2019, from January to September. Despite the seriousness of this subject, each of the six groups felt positive and energized at the close of the workshop.
Follow-up will take the form of "Eco-resilience Gatherings" to begin in November providing those interested an opportunity to socialize, to share announcements and to join a discussion led by people with key experience in building community-level, Transition-Town/ Village-Vancouver style resilience.
We acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the Xwméthkwyiem (Musqueam), Skwxwúmesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
