Redesigning Our Communities for Life After Fossil Fuels
November 18 @ 3:00 pm - November 29 @ 6:30 pm
Biodiversity for a Livable Climate is partnering with the Post Carbon Institute and local community organizations in Oregon to bring you the fifth installation in our series of six events hosted virtually and in-person throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The purpose of this series is to educate leaders and other residents in each community on our predicament of declining energy resources, the power that restoring nature’s ecosystems and biodiversity has to reduce wildfires, flooding, drought, and cool the temperatures, the urgent need to grow and distribute more food locally, and the strategies local leaders are using to redesign our communities for life after fossil fuels.
Our past four events have elevated the forward-thinking initiatives of diverse community leaders in and around Cleveland, Los Angeles, Kansas City and Montgomery County, Maryland.
It’s time to scale way back, redesign how we’re living, and roll up our sleeves to restore our ecosystems, soil, biodiversity, our local food infrastructures, place-based systems, and our connections with our neighbors.
As we learn and take action on how to live within the Earth’s limits, it’s vital that we co-invent and redesign our new lifestyles together with all members of our communities, especially our under-resourced community members, who are often the most seriously impacted by the climate and other crises.
Let’s include everyone in the conversations, the plans, and the funding. We must move forward by coming together, learning from one another, and supporting each other as we strengthen our local communities and face the challenges ahead.
Join us on Saturday, November 18, 2023 on Zoom with local leaders from Oregon as we share expertise, solutions and resources to guide you in setting up your transition to life after fossil fuels during these rapidly changing times.
