The Community Resilience Festival will be a unique opportunity to learn more about the actions, allies and assets we have in the Eugene area for creating a more green and resilient present and future. We will mix, mingle, meet, greet, show and tell.

Plans include over 25 community organizations tabling along with skill share, kid zone, plenary talks, fishbowls and round table conversations. All this about reducing eco footprints and building community economics and community culture. There will be companion site tours Aug 17, 31, Sept 7, 14, 21 and 28.

Key words and concepts – reducing eco footprints, local food systems, climate change, suburban permaculture, block planning, cooperative economics, the River Road/Santa Clara Neighborhood Plan.
