Increase communication on basic characteristics of resilience: what it is and what it is not.
The ISET-International team develops and delivers a range of compelling narratives on how to build the resilience of communities affected by climate change in order to ultimately build policy and public support for further action.
A variety of media forms including videos, blogs, social network engagement, op-eds, presentations, working papers, and journal articles are produced to tell the stories of climate-vulnerable communities. This expansive toolbox allows ISET-International to produce straightforward and accessible media out of complex theories, practices, and frameworks surrounding climate change adaptation and implementation.
The program will have the following components:

ISET-International and BoCo Strong would like to extend an open invitation to our Boulder community and neighbors! Come join the discussion on emerging global initiatives and how those relate to the Boulder area’s flood recovery and other ongoing resilience planning initiatives.
Boulder is not alone in the debates it faces over pathways to a vibrant, sustainable, and climate resilient future. Join the discussion about exciting initiatives that are addressing disasters around the world, such as the recent floods and fires that have affected Boulder and the surrounding areas. Whether the immediate issue is density and open space, municipal energy supply, local food, or recovery from disaster: the opportunities and challenges Boulder faces are shared by communities around the world. Globally, innovation in this area is growing rapidly.
The question that we ask you now is: What can we do to make our community and world more resilient?
We’ll have lots of time to talk and debate. Come watch a brief presentation, an interesting panel of local and international experts on resilience, and enjoy amazing local, organic food and drinks! Shine offers local organic food, housemade intentional potions and make all their beer on site.
Make sure to take part of their beautiful offerings! Eat.Drink.SHINE.
