Increasing Community Resilience

Increasing Community Resilience

You are invited to an evening of debate to examine how communities can become more resilient, tackling this important issue from a fresh perspective.  The discussion will run from 7 pm to 9 pm on Wednesday 29th November in Brampton Community Centre.

Societies across the world are living through a period of significant uncertainty and change caused at least in part through global influences such as climate change, emerging technologies (some good some bad), security threats, political instability and financial crises to name but a few.  It is therefore an opportune time to consider ways in which rural communities like ours could potentially become more resilient and thus better placed to survive and thrive through the 21st Century and beyond.  

The evening will be highly interactive, and will include an exercise called, “Worldview Carousel”, where you and your neighbours will discover the predominant worldviews in our society today, and which worldviews could lead to greater resilience in a rural community like Brampton. The results of this exercise will be used to guide the subsequent discussion.  We will explore:

  • What’s the definition of a resilient community?
  • Where is there a community that improved resilience and how did they do it?
  • When we disagree on how to achieve a resilient community, how do we then regain alignment?
  • Discussion of issues arising and next steps…
  • Did you find the evening’s discussion to be helpful both personally and professionally?  

The evening will be chaired by Tim Coombe, chair, Sustainable Brampton, and the analysis will be led by Christopher and Sheila Cooke — together they support individuals, families and groups to begin the process of change in their own lives. They operate internationally in the field of worldview change, and are focused on the application of Holistic Management across the British Isles. They live and operate out of Penrith.
