How do communities respond to the environmental, economic and equity challenges of today - and maintain their sense of identity and place? Participant will explore concepts, strategies and tools for building community resilience from a citizen-driven, culturally sensitive perspective and analyze innovative experiences for change from diverse contexts. Central to the exploration is valuing and sharing local and indigenous knowledge in ecological management, food security, governance, conflict transformation, cultural revitalization and well-being that enables communities to face both shocks and ongoing stresses. Collectively, participants determine how to influence policies, programs and practices that build resilience in their own communities.
Who should take the program?
This program is ideal for heads of organizations, program developers, directors and senior staff in community-based organizations, NGOs, government departments, universities and international organizations looking to ensure that their programming is respectful of, and benefits from, local and indigenous knowledge.
