The EU funded TESS project invites you to a free taster workshop and discussion on Community Resilience on Monday Aug 1st in Edinburgh (12.30-2.30pm). It will also be an introduction to an online, ‘compass of resilience’ tool that community groups can use to assess their current state of resilience and prioritise future action. Book your place here: Resilience Workshop
This workshop forms part of the process of developing a resource package to support facilitators to run resilience workshops in their own communities. This is motivated by the belief that community resilience will be crucial, not just for communities to be able to return to some normality after a crisis but to be able to respond creatively to future challenges and innovate locally appropriate solutions for a zero carbon future in uncertain times.
This package is one of the outputs from the TESS project that is researching the impact of community based climate action groups across Europe. It is based on and inspired by an approach outlined in the two-year action research project ‘Exploring Community Resilience’ run by Nick Wilding and supported by Carnegie UK.
There will be a buffet lunch provided at 12.30pm with the workshop starting at 1pm until 2.30pm.
