Connecting local responses around the world
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.
