Upon registration, you will receive reminders for each of the Conversations on Resilience Webinars

At Gaia Education, we want our participants to learn how to prepare and respond, becoming more resilient at the psychological (worldview), social, economic and ecological levels. We believe that the best way to be resilient is by creating regenerative communities and households and cultivating regenerative livelihoods for all.

In this webinar series we are inviting speakers, activists and authors who have been researching, documenting, working and teaching about resilience in communities.

Join us throughout the sessions and come to the forefront of the conversation about making our communities stronger and more resilient! Below you will find the registration link for each webinar.

Design for Resilience

Supporting individuals and communities through deep adaptation and emergency preparedness

In this course, we will use a whole systems approach, incorporating interdisciplinary tools (resilience science and practice, Art of Hosting, Theory of U, Transformational Resilience, Permaculture and the practical tools from disaster management and emergency preparedness).

Using the VUCA context tool (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity) we will guide you to map your household and community and support you on designing integrated and resilient systems, from inner to physical.

This is a hands-on, very practical and fun course where you will come up with a realistic plan for you, your family and your community!
