Exploring Climate Anxiety and Building Community Resilience Together Studium Generale, The Little Theater in the Pirate Union Building (PUB)at Peninsula College, Port Angeles campus and on Zoom

“People are experiencing a wide range of responses to how climate change is affecting our communities and our lives,” Melanie Greer, WSU extension staff and 4-H Program Coordinator said. Her presentation at Peninsula College will introduce a common language and knowledge about the range of reactions people are reporting, and strategies to take towards personal and community resilience.

This is the culminating presentation for Resilience Month, a community-wide effort. Together, community partners are tackling adversity, such as climate anxiety, and responding with shared leadership: a county-wide innovative, collaborative month of events and activities focused on building knowledge, skills, connection, and resilience.

Increase awareness, prevention, recovery, and resilience around TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries), injury and violence, and access to resources.

Presented by: David Minor, Washington State Traumatic Brain Injury Strategic Partnership Advisory Council

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI's) can impact anyone anywhere. The planning, coordination, and delivery of services must consider diverse communities across the lifespan of an injury. Most common causes of TBI are falls, firearm injury, motor vehicle crash, or an assault.

Come learn about available support systems and materials including: partnership integration; person centered and trauma informed practices; connections – relationships; community disparities; and regional and local access points. What can we do for our community to make this a universal approach?
