Focussing up to community adaptation

Oct 5, 2023 at 14:00 — 16:00 (BST)

Online Workshop: Thursday, Oct 5th, 2.00 - 4.00 pm BST - limited places (20 people involved with community groups)

As adaptation to climate change, food security and other issues becomes urgent, it's clear that community-scale adaptation will be crucial. But where are the templates, processes, role models, and enabling networks? The aim of this workshop is to share knowledge between us on what's available, where the gaps are, and how to fill them.

The workshop is intended for community groups, individuals, and organisations involved with community resilience, including NGOs.One aim is to help community groups to see how they can engage with and benefit from statutory frameworks, such as the Local Resilience Forums. As a catalyst for our exploration, we'll use Whatever Next: Risk Review - UK 2030, a new research report produced by Schumacher Institute and commissioned by Seeding our Future.


Kathryn Monk is an ecologist and independent consultant, focussing on collaboration networks to deliver sustainability. She was Head of Integrated Evidence at Natural Resources Wales and is now increasingly involved in more local community action in Bristol around environmental and well-being issues.

Alan Heeks has initiated a range of community resilience initiatives through his Seeding our Future project, with special interests in climate adaptation, food security, group dynamics and cohousing.

Ian Roderick is the founder and voluntary director of the Schumacher Institute and plays a leading role in their research, teaching and pilot projects on many aspects of climate response, community resilience and systems thinking.
