North Bay Forward 2021-2022 Building Resilience Series

North Bay Forward is hosting the 2021-22 BUILDING RESILIENCE SERIES and asks you to ***HOLD THE DATES***

Beginning on October 13, from noon - 1 p.m., and on the second Wednesday of each month following, North Bay Forward launches a year-long conversation with their "Building Resilience" series to increase community collaboration on resilience to climate change. At each event, leaders working on local resilience projects will describe their current projects, followed by guided discussions among attendees focusing on ways to partner. Resilience can only be achieved through collaboration and authentic representation, and throughout the focus will be on ensuring that those of us most affected by climate change have a voice at the table. This series is supported by the Center for Environmental Inquiry as part of Sonoma State University's President’s Climate Leadership Commitment. Sonoma State faculty and staff will discuss ways that SSU is interested in partnering to move us towards a more resilient future.
