Join us for our next Webinar and Conversation Café offering.

Resilience for the Great Unraveling
with Richard Heinberg & Silvia Di Blasio

Saturday, January 28
9 – 11 AM PST (UTC -8)
**Check what time this will be for you HERE.**

As a species, we have witnessed as entire empires collapsed. Living with ongoing collapse has been the reality for many communities and beings for a long time. What Richard Heinberg and many others share, however, is that the current Great Unraveling is a convergence of many crises, mainly our society’s deep dependence on fossil fuels for everything from food to health to transportation and energy. Building resilience is imperative, but what does that look like for individuals and communities? What has worked and how can we start building that now?

Join us in this deep conversation on the Great Unraveling and how we, as WTR practitioners and followers, can contribute to the resilience of the most vulnerable in our communities.
