Facing climate change

Building resilient communities

6 week online course

Tuesdays 4.30pm-6.30pm

Starting on 6th October 2020

“Pay As You Can”

In collaboration with Seeding our Future @future_scanning

Are you interested in exploring how we can build better communities and build our resilience? Can we “build back better’ to make our communities more resilient in the face of the impacts of climate change.

Future Conversations is inviting you to join us for this 6 week journey to

  • Connect and share our hopes as well as our fears and challenges. Build your inner resilience by learning valuable lessons from nature
  • Open up to your creativity and motivation to build resilient communities
  • Challenge our beliefs and norms to allow what’s possible to emerge, particularly the impact of the climate emergency, and related social justice issues.

Register today, we’re looking forward to connecting and hosting these conversations for our future with you.

We will meet for 6 weeks (from 4:30 – 6:00 pm BST -UK time on Tuesday evenings) to examine how to explore and build individual and community resilience and begin making plans for a better future. This series of guided conversations will enable us to explore hopes, fears and needs for the next 5-20 years. We will explore facts and feelings, and provide processes and information to grow the confidence and skills to shape the future positively.

We offer this as a “Pay As You Can” series. We suggest a donation of £20, £30 or £40 for the 6 sessions. Any amount you can contribute over that will help our work to bring Future Conversations to more communities. If you’d like to contribute more please do.
