March 7 Wellington - Pathways to Resilient communities Hui

in

On 7th March 2009, Pathways to Resilient Communities will offer an opportunity for Wellington regional community leaders and local authorities to actively engage in assessing the resilience of our local communities in relation to the range of increasingly likely external shocks.

This understanding will then encourage the implementation of a pathway to strengthen local resilience. The event involves open dialogue with representatives from local government, businesses, not-for-profit organisations and the wider Wellington community on resiliency in the face of growing physical and economic threats. Pathways to Resilient Communities will be facilitated by Mary-Alice Arthur of SOAR.

This event is organised by a steering group consisting of NGOs, transition town members, community and business leaders, and councillors. We believe that there is much value in this event. We welcome any questions you may have.

Re: March 7 Wellington - Pathways to Resilient communities Hui

Would be good to get people from all political bents there eg. workers' rights advocates, refugees and migrants, community gardeners, tangata whenua, anti-capitalists etc etc.

Re: March 7 Wellington - Pathways to Resilient communities Hui

exactly we need radial voices everywhere

Re: March 7 Wellington - Pathways to Resilient communities Hui

A group of middle class people playing games and spending our money. There's something new. NOT.

"Would be good to get people from all political bents there eg. workers' rights advocates, refugees and migrants, community gardeners, tangata whenua, anti-capitalists etc etc."

"exactly we need radial voices everywhere"

This is about business. WE aren't allowed to be involved.

Best not to be involved any ways. This is just middle class bullshit.

Seems this is an add which I didn't think Indymedia allowed??

Re: March 7 Wellington - Pathways to Resilient communities Hui

The web site explains resilience as "It will improve survival ability without relying on external aid". Sounds like fortified compounds to me. Shiver.

Re: March 7 Wellington - Pathways to Resilient communities Hui

Sounds like an open community event to me... maybe thats what it is.

Re: March 7 Wellington - Pathways to Resilient communities Hui

It only middleclass if no one else turns up.

"go on - get a job"

Already got one. What point are you trying to make?

sorry sam but what you have is not a job - it is a delusion you have that you are "helping" society when actually you simply encourage those afraid to get a proper job
