Community Resilience: Rolling Up Our Sleeves
Resilience is much more than our personal capacity to overcome adversity. It is instead a reflection of how well individuals, families, employers and communities work together to create opportunities for people to navigate their way to the resources they need for well-being. When individuals, families, and neighbourhoods struggle, there are implications for all of us. Thriving communities happen when people come together to share ideas and collaborate on solutions.
On November 9, the first Community Resilience Summit was held in Guelph. Health and social care organizations collaborated with community builders, change-makers, decision-makers and business leaders to discover what goes into building resilient and equitable communities.
Community Resilience: Rolling Up Our Sleeves is a chance for Alliance members to explore together how to put learnings from the Summit into action. This half-day of collaborative learning and planning will be led by the ACEs & Community Resilience coalition. We’ll dig into the role each of us can play in building resilience into our communities, building partnerships across multiple sectors to make our communities stronger and more equitable.
