Join IPS for this talk and book signing, featuring IPS Fellow Chuck Collins, author of 99 to 1: How Wealth Inequality Is Wrecking the World and What We Can Do About It.
Please join us for an interactive online webinar about tips for organizing a Resilience Circle or Common Security Club. Resilience Circles are a small group approach to building individual and community resilience during difficult economic times.
“Resilience Circles,” are small groups of 10 – 20 people that help strengthen community ties during this time of economic and ecological challenges. This interactive workshop will provide a taste of the benefits of forming such a circle.
Resilience Circles are springing up across the United States.
As hard economic times get harder, many Americans turn to helping each other.
“Resilience Circles” are popping up all around the country. They’re transformative, hopeful, and fun.
Join us to discuss the economic system meltdown, building a “New Economy,” and a local response for personal and community resilience with Common Security Clubs.
My neighbors and I know we can’t go back to the old economy. But what can we do to build a new one?
What is a Common Security Club? It’s a new way for group leaders and trainers to help people help themselves in these troubled times.
These are challenging times for all of us. The economic meltdown and concerns about the health of the planet have left people isolated, vulnerable and afraid. Common Security Clubs are a way to find connection, information, and avenues to a new kind of security—one based on mutual aid and support. Participants learn about the causes of economic and ecological changes, overcome isolation and strengthen community ties.
At many crucial moments in our past, small groups have played an essential role in incubating the seeds of great change.
How do we prepare for economic and ecological change? In response to our insecure times, congregations and communities are forming “Common Security Clubs” to build resilience and strengthen community ties.
How can Transition Towns and Common Security Clubs help us navigate a changing economy and environment?
People are forming groups where they can face the reality that we are not going back to a growth economy, that our earth is truly imperiled, and that we must create the new world now.
Wall Street might be bouncing back, but what about the rest of us?
These organizations can be a source of comfort and strength in a time of financial uncertainty.
