Community Preparedness as a Path to Transition (Two Part Series)

Online (Donation Requested)
Tuesday, November 16, 2010 - 3:00am - 4:00am

“How can we reach beyond the choir?”  is a common refrain heard in Transition Town circles.  But two Transition-type groups in Washington State may have found a possible answer.  Using the banner of “preparedness” the Methow Valley Community Preparedness Committee (CPC) of N. Central Washington, and the L2020 group of Port Townsend, are both successfully inspiring a broad spectrum of people to engage in sustainable, community-building activities in their local areas.  Whether it’s working together to meet basic needs in preparation of a natural disaster, creating greater food security, or finding local solutions to the economic crisis, the need to be better prepared appears to resonate broadly regardless of people’s politics, religion, or economic status.  Join us for a two-part Webinar to find out how these groups are making surprising inroads into the normally more challenging corners of their communities using “preparedness” as their guide. 

The Webinars are as follows:

Webinar I: Wednesday, October 20th at 11 a.m. PT will feature Kristi Laguzza-Boosman of CPC talking about how to successfully launch a preparedness effort and their experience organizing their Neighborhood Preparedness Fair & BBQ.  Judy Alexander of L2020 will provide closing comments.  Both speakers will take questions at the end.

Webinar II:  Tuesday, November 16th at 11 a.m. PT will feature L2020’s Judy Alexander and Deborah Stinson talking about the long-term impacts and advantages of working on preparedness efforts in their community.  Kristi Laguzza-Boosman will provide the intro.  All speakers will take questions at the end.
