Presentation by Bob Doppelt, author of Transformational Resilience: How Building Human Resilience to Climate Disruption Can Safeguard Society and Increase Wellbeing
Followed by Q& A, discussion, sharing ideas for resources, services and programming

Part I: Bob Doppelt will orient us beyond emission reductions, physical infrastructure and natural resources. Instead, this webinar will focus on how individuals and groups can build capacity to cope with and use the adversities generated by climate change as catalysts to learn, grow and flourish. Librarians, along with mental health, public health, emergency response, education, and faith leaders can offer resources, services and programming that emphasize building preventative personal and psychosocial resilience skills.

Toxic stresses generated by climate disruption damage the psychological, emotional, and social wellbeing of individuals, organizations, communities and whole societies. This webinar will offer methods and skills that build capacity and use the traumas of climate change as catalysts to find new meaning, direction, and hope in life. For ourselves, and our patrons.

Part II: What specific roles can libraries play in creating a safety net for our communities — before, during, and after climate disruption events? We will share ideas for resilience-building resources, services and programming.
