BIOREGIONAL LEARNING JOURNEY

Experience first-hand how South Devon is building climate resilience: 9-14 September, 2019

What might a joined-up climate resilience strategy for South Devon look like? What would make this place more resilient, who’s making change happen and where are the nodes, links, and ‘leverage points’? What’s the role of surprising events? Travelling around the bioregion, you’ll meet do-ers… policy makers, academic researchers, river scientists, shell fishers, farmers, landowners, health experts, community innovators and ‘new radicals’.

We’ll be learning collectively, as a group of ‘detectives’ and as individuals, mapping for resilience as we go. We’ll look at how resilient South Devon is now and how that could be measured. Learning from local experience, we will hear how climate change is already having an impact and what responses are being demanded of us. Every sector and each place is facing many challenges.

At the end of each day’s programme we will reflect on how the challenges connect up and how visible they are to people.

You can book for a single day, more than one or all five-and-a-half days. Places are limited, apply to participate.
