Building Resilient Neighbourhoods
Workshop Series

jointly presented by


Transition Victoria
Community Social Planning Council of Greater Victoria
Smart Planning for Communities

 

Despite the fear and uncertainty surrounding climate change, the unstable economy, and rising oil prices —or perhaps because of them—people around the world are beginning to look towards new ways of living, in harmony with the planet and each other. We are adapting in ways that make us healthier , more connected and more able to adapt to changes as they occur – more resilient.

What if you could work closely with others to help make your neighbourhood truly resilient?
Come join Transition Victoria, the Community Social Planning Council of Greater Victoria, and Smart Planning for BC for a series of workshops about how to help your neighbourhood survive and thrive amidst the gathering global environmental and economic challenges. Join us for one or all of the events in the series. Admission is free. Click here to view and download a PDF poster of these events.
