Cultivating Resilient Communities
Resources in the Face of Global Crisis
Mark Fairfield | 30 August 2019 | Brisbane
In this workshop, international Gestalt trainer, author and organiser Mark Fairfield presents a framework for protecting communities under threat, pulling from research on resilience and social capital.
Around the globe, communities are increasingly confronted with the imperative to take action to protect their human rights, their civil liberties, their livelihoods, and their well-being. But the scale of the problems threatening these fundamental values is so huge that the efforts required must be coordinated and managed at levels exceeding capacity.
The effect is a kind of unravelling and polarization of relationships that will undermine success. Now more than ever, communities need to build their resilience to stay in the struggle.
