Further info: Five Eco-resilience workshops were held in 2019, from January to May. Despite the seriousness of this subject, each of the 5 groups felt positive and energized at the close of the workshop.
Follow-up will take the form of "Eco-resilience Gatherings" to begin in 2020 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.
