Community Resilience: Rebuild, Renew, Reform

Increasingly, citizens are finding new and innovative ways to reclaim, if not rebuild, their food, energy, and financial systems — and with incredibly successful results.

How can you help your community join this growing relocalization movement and become more resilient?

Chelsea Green Publishing has partnered with Transition US [1] and Post Carbon Institute [2] to bring you Community Resilience Chats [3]—a webinar series that delves into details essential for communities that are ready to take the necessary steps to reclaim their future. These chats stem from the Community Resilience Guides [4] co-published by Post Carbon Institute and Chelsea Green.

In the first Community Resilience Chat, Philip Ackerman-Leist, author of Rebuilding the Foodshed [5], tackled the array of questions that arise in the face of the foodscape revolution. Missed it? Watch the video here: [6]


The next chat is tentatively scheduled for July 24th at 11 AM (PST): Power From the People [7]. Greg Pahl’s book fortifies community resilience through the planning, finance and production of reliable, renewable, clean, local energy for a sustainable future. Two of the people featured in the book will talk about how they launched community-based energy projects.

Coming Soon: Local Dollars, Local Sense [8]. Michael Shuman’s perspective sheds light on rebooting the economy to meet the needs of investors and entrepreneurs for a healthy and secure local economy.

Want more? Chelsea Green is offering The Community Resilience Guide Series Set [4] to keep you informed in the conversation on rebuilding clean food systems, creating renewable energy and reforming the economy as resilient community.
