We live in tumultuous times. Climate change-related natural disasters are occurring with more frequency and ferocity across the globe. A global pandemic has shaken us all. Whatever the disaster, we know community members are the first responders and the people we can rely on during recovery. How can ABCD support communities to prepare for disasters? What could ABCD-driven, community-led disaster recovery look like? Can ABCD help mitigate some of the social disruption that disasters trigger? What role do we all play?
Join us as we share stories, discuss what is possible, and start to think about how to move forward!
What is a Global Gathering?
Global Gatherings are NOT webinars or presentations. They are opportunities for members and guests of ABCD in Action to engage in meaningful conversations. We don't have the answers to the questions we propose, but we'll provide a space for you to share your stories, ideas, and questions. Our hosts will guide you through a series of questions in small groups in order to help you think together about the questions we propose.
At the end of our scheduled time together, you are invited to stick around for the "lounge", a chance to just hang out for 15 minutes and talk about whatever is important to you.
Co-hosts for this Global Gathering:
- Michelle Dunscombe, Australia
- Deb Wisniewski, United States
