Community-led Resilience in Emergencies

About Community-led Resilience in Emergencies

From Australia’s bush-fires, to Puerto Rico’s hurricane and UK floods, when a crisis hits, stories of mass destruction often dominate the headlines, but we also see the extraordinary power of communities coming together.

WHAT IS THE EVENT?
Join Glasgow Eco Trust along at Yoker Community Campus for our latest Community Environmental Forum where we will explore how communities pull together in the face of emergencies and hope emerges in unexpected places.

The event, which is the next in our series of Community Environmental Forums, will start with a film screening of "The Response: How Puerto Ricans are restoring power to the people" introduced by Tom Llewellyn, leader of The Response Project for Shareable.net

This 30-minute micro-budget film from Shareable.net, an award-winning non profit media outlet, action network, and consultancy. In the wake of Hurricane Maria, a quiet revolution has been percolating on the island of Puerto Rico. What began as an impromptu community kitchen meant to help feed survivors in the town of Caguas quickly grew into an island-wide network of mutual aid centers (Centros de Apoyo Mutuo) with the ultimate goal to restore power — both electric and civic — to the people.

WORKSHOP
The film screening will be followed by a Q&A and workshop with Tom Llewellyn exploring how we might reimagine existing community spaces (churches, community centres, gardens, etc.) as "Resilience Hubs".

WHO IS IT FOR AND WHY SHOULD I COME?
This event is for community activists and organisations, charities, community centres and hubs including churches as well as all those interested in exploring ideas for community-led resilience in emergencies.

TIMINGS
Registrations will open at 9:45am with the event starting promptly at 10:00am. Light refreshments and lunch will be provided. The event will finish by 1:00pm.

BOOKING
The event is FREE to attend but we ask that people book in advance.

SHAREABLE
Shareable is an award-winning nonprofit news, action and connection hub for the sharing transformation.

What’s the sharing transformation? It’s a movement of movements emerging from the grassroots up to solve today’s biggest challenges, which old, top-down institutions are failing to address.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Community-led Resilience in Emergencies are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
