In 2018 NewStories and Transition US convened a learning cohort called "Stories to Action: Building a Community of Results". Through a series of salons, participants moved their ideas from inspriation into implementation. One of these ideas came to fruition when participant Chris Gilmour created, then implemented, his Changing World project

 

In this FREE webinar you'll have a chance to hear about Changing World and the inspirational work that NewStories and Bob Stilger are doing to regerate communities.

 

Description

 

Beyond the devastation and destruction of disaster, and the fear of climate change, there’s an opportunity to consider what’s truly important in our lives. An opportunity to build things better than they are now.

What holds open that space of possibility?

We need a whole new paradigm around disasters. Disasters are no longer an infrequent phenomena. Climate, social, political, economic and personal disasters are dominant features in the landscape of our lives.

We must re-imagine our work of preparing for, recovering from, and rebuilding after disasters. This work is really about regenerating community.
