These topics are suggestions to get you thinking, and you are welcome to approach them from whatever direction feels right. If something doesn’t apply to you directly, forego it or adjust the topic so that it fits. Please include “Deepening Resilience” in the title and/or tags of your blog post, to help people recognize the project.
There are no experts when it comes to building ecological resilience, because each of our communities are unique. No one who joins this project has all of the answers. Your personal experience and skill set is needed; please engage from wherever and however you are.
