We hear you. Everyone is busy, especially local governments who are still working through the lingering effects of a global pandemic and increasingly limited resources. And of course the pace and scale of climate change continues to accelerate, creating extra pressure for action. So why do we ask local leaders to commit a full day for each of two workshops in our Whole Community Resilience framework?
There are 4 important reasons we recommend your workshops be 6-7 hours long each (and yes, that includes lunch!):
- Climate change is complex
- Deciding what to do about climate change is also complex
- Identifying vulnerabilities is scary (but being together helps!)
- The workshop is just the beginning of the work
