“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.
