What Is Resilience

 How can communities increase resilience and why would they want to?

Join LCFF and local resident, West Latta, for the first in a series of workshops to explore the fundamental concepts of community resilience and use them as a lens to examine the many challenges we face today and in the future.  From environment to economy, the local and the bio-regional, we’ll make connections, explore systems and discover how to make our communities stronger, more adaptive, and ready to face the full scope of social, environmental and economic challenges equitably and sustainable.
