Our friends at the Post Carbon Institute are hosting a guided online course with the Security & Sustainability Forum in October. Their description:

“Our popular Think Resilience course will be led by Richard Heinberg, who will be joined by special guests Katharine Hayhoe and Denise Fairchild

The course is rooted in learning how to build community resilience, which is why I thought the Community Solutions audience might be interested in hearing about it. 

Richard covers a lot of ground during the six weeks that the course will run, and by the end participants have a really good start on two important skills:

1. How to make sense of some of the most complex challenges—climate change, inequality, economic instability—that society now faces. When it comes to these crises, what are the underlying, systemic forces at play that brought us to this place? We believe we can only achieve meaningful change through this deeper level of understanding.

2. How to build community resilience. In addition to making impactful changes in our own lives, speaking out and engaging as national and global citizens, we also need to accept the challenge of building resilience in our communities in order to weather the 21st century's multiple sustainability crises.”
