Preparing for Crisis: Why Communities Must Take Control

Thursday March 21st
Doors & drinks 6.30pm; Event starts 7pm

Serious times are coming down the track and yet the government's efforts on adaptation to climate change are ramshackle and the picture across the 42 Local Resilience Forums is of dust gathering. We can see from Covid, Grenfell and other serious events that communities themselves are the first responders.

As we move into the age of climate impacts we need a truly "civil" contingencies infrastructure, which works with the local power and efficacy we saw during the pandemic. To begin debate about what this should look like and how it should be done, The New Weather Institute and The Cadence Roundtable will set out the case for communities taking control of their own contingency plans.

Join us for a presentation of the ideas in the new booklet "Unprepared: The Case for Community Control of Civil Contingency Plans", followed by a climate preparedness workshop.
