WORKSHOP 3 – December 8 – Nurturing Community Climate Resilience: Fostering and nurturing community resilience is rapidly being identified as a key process to support and protect communities amid the impacts of climate change. The workshop conceptualizes community and systems resilience as a flexible, evolving, ever in motion verb—an ongoing interconnected process of natural, built, and sociopolitical systems—rather than a noun—a static thing, or endpoint. Resilience building must also recognize the dynamics of induced vulnerability through systems of discrimination that contribute to and maintain power, knowledge, and resource inequity. Activating community resilience also means having a good understanding of who and what the community is, requires, and encompasses.
