SAANICH RESILIENCE LEARNING SERIES
Want to learn more about how you can make your neighbourhood stronger and more resilient today? Join us for this FREE and engaging workshop series.
Resilience the capacity of communities to adapt, withstand stresses, and respond to proactively change.
You will collaborate with fellow Saanich residents to identify the characteristics of your own neighbourhood that are supporting or hindering increased resilience. You’ll also learn about the global and local context that is creating the need for greater community resilience and hear inspiring examples from local and other communities.

From book boxes and skill sharing to community gardens and Transition Streets, in this workshop, you’ll explore ways of adapting local and international examples of resilience-in-action to start strengthening resilience alongside neighbours on your street or in your block. You’ll brainstorm, share and give feedback on possible project ideas in groups and learn about how you can get support for projects through our Resilient Streets micro-grants.
