The purpose of this group is to share ideas and advance our collective understanding of resilience thinking and community resilience. We have a meeting cycle for 2-months– a first meeting will introduce the topic to the group by a lead presenter, someone invested in the topic and looking for input from the group, and a second meeting when everyone comes prepared to share ideas for how to overcome challenges, suggestions for resources, and options for the lead to consider. For each meeting, discussion will follow the presentations and a summary will be prepared and posted on a yet to be developed website. Our goal is to forward our thinking and ability to organize action – to share challenges for lands, businesses and community with an experienced group of ecologists, educators, activists, managers and land owners.
