a word of caution: Persons who are vulnerable to depression or other mental health issues, or who have had a recent major personal loss, should delay participation until they get encouragement to participate from a counsellor, health professional or supportive friend.
Further info: Seven Eco-resilience workshops have been held in 2019, from January to October. Despite the seriousness of this subject, each of the seven groups seemed positive and energized at the close of the workshop.
Follow-up will take the form of "Eco-resilience Gatherings" to begin in 2020 to provide those interested an opportunity to socialize, share announcements and to join a focused discussion led by persons experienced 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.
