|The CAST 11 Podcast Network is sponsored by the Prescott Valley Outdoor Summit. Where adventure comes together.|
The Flagstaff City-Coconino County Public Library and the Flagstaff Sustainability Office invite community members to join us for the new Climate Resilience Project. The project will offer intergenerational knowledge building, discussions, and hands-on learning opportunities to promote individual and community resilience in Flagstaff.
The City is excited to explore our community’s ability to prepare for, recover from, and flourish after climate events with residents and learn what resilience means to them.
Monthly events will rotate between:
- Climate Conversations – Community discussions where residents can collaboratively
learn and discuss a unique topic, facilitated by an expert for guidance, information, and
- Resilience Work Sessions – Opportunities to put learning into action by supporting
ongoing resilience efforts in Flagstaff. These sessions might include work at wildfire or flooding sites, citizen science projects, or neighborhood and household emergency planning.
The Climate Resilience Project is a space where people can come as they are to discover, learn, and grow while building on the collective knowledge, skills, beliefs, attitudes, and experiences of our community. Elders, seniors, youth, families, amateurs, professionals, and people of all ages, experience, and climate-knowledge levels are welcome to join this service-learning initiative!
Community members are invited to join the first Community Resilience Project event on September 13th, 6 PM, at the Downtown Library Community Room, 300 W Aspen Ave, to discuss Flagstaff’s Climate Impacts and Vulnerabilities. People interested in learning more about upcoming events or proposing topics they would like covered can do so at this link.
