Havens in storms: climate adaptation for ourselves and our communities 

Saturday October 15 at Castle Green Pavilion, Hereford 10-5pm 

Castle Green Pavilion, Hereford

This is an exploratory workshop space, inviting both individuals, and representatives of communities and organisations across Herefordshire, to grow their capacities to adapt to the major disruptions ahead of us. We aim to explore some of the emotional, spiritual and practical development and nourishment that may be needed by us as individuals and by our communities as we seek to adapt. We will draw on Deep Adaptation and The Work That Reconnects, and will explore how loving presence, resource and skill sharing, and other approaches can build an infrastructure of adaptation for local communities in the next few years.

Facilitated by Kate Gathercole, Alan Heeks and Kristina Jamieson. All three have been working on personal and community resilience for many years. Kate is known locally through New Leaf & Herefordshire Green Network, and is experienced in therapeutic and community facilitation and group work. Alan has been working with Deep Adaptation since 2018, as well as with a number of locally focused projects in Dorset. Kristina has facilitated and supported Transition Town groups and Extinction Rebellion Marches, drawing on her experience of work with patients and carer communities.
