Local, Resilient Diversity; A Discussion of Community & Place

With Starhawk & Charles Williams from Earth Activist Training

One of our core permaculture principles is that diversity creates resilience.  Another is to localize, to root in place.  But what if our local community is not as diverse as we would like?  Or diverse in ways we don’t like?  With culture wars being waged all around us, how can we balance our commitment to social justice with our need to make alliances with folks who may not share similar values or visions?  This workshop explores some aspects of social permaculture—communication tools and understandings that can help us know when to set boundaries and how to bridge gaps and find common ground.

Raising Resilient Youth for an Uncertain Future

With Andrew McMartin from The Pine Project

The world we have experienced in the past twenty years is not the same one our youth will have to navigate over the next twenty. Everything is changing, from the economy and workforce to the environment, climate change and the social climate.

How can we support youth to develop the physical and mental capacity to adapt and navigate the challenges of an uncertain future?

Andrew shares ideas and practices from his twenty-plus years of helping youth develop capacity and resiliency through their relationship with nature, risk and community.
