How can a community lead the charge in reversing the climate emergency? The Centre for Ecological Learning Luxembourg, Cell, sets out to answer that question with this online talk with Davie Philip.
In what is their third talk in the climate series, Philip will give an overview of community-led responses to climate change and community resilience. He’ll give local examples that any community can adopt to help their region adapt to climate change.
After a 20-30 minute presentation, there will be an exchange among participants.
Davie Philip is vice-president at ECOLISE, the European network for community-led initiatives on climate change and sustainability. In Ireland he hosts events and facilitates groups working on collaborative approaches to help their localities flourish through the Community Resilience Programme at Cultivate Living and Learning.
Locally he is a founding member of Cloughjordan CoHousing, which is developing an affordable neighbourhood model of housing, and is currently the chair of Cloughjordan Community Farm, Ireland’s largest CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) project. Davie was one of the original catalysts of the Transition Towns process.
