In brief, the course, which starts January 10th, will explore two main topics:
1. How to make sense of the complex challenges society now faces. What are the underlying, systemic forces at play? What brought us to this place? Acting without this understanding is like putting a bandage on a life-threatening injury.
2. How to build community resilience. While we must also act in our individual lives and as national and global citizens, building the resilience of our communities is an essential response to the 21st century’s multiple sustainability crises.
More specifically, you will have the opportunity throughout this course to grapple with a wide variety of fascinating and highly-illuminating subjects like “Thinking in Systems,” “Culture Change and Neuroscience,” “Six Foundations for Building Community Resilience,” “Economic Relocalization,” and many more.
This course will run from January 10th through to February 28th, 2019. Weekly group webinars will be on Thursdays at 11:00am Pacific Standard Time, starting January 17th. Click here to check what time the webinars start in your location.
