Title: Strategies for Resourcing Community Solutions that Build Community Wealth
Date/Time: Tuesday, August 22nd, 2023 from 1:30-4:00 pm PST / 4:30-7:00 pm EST
A Just Transition signifies a deep economic transformation rooted in interdependence. How can we resource the solutions our communities need in ways that disrupt patterns of extraction, exploitation, and dependency? In this 2.5-hour, interactive, online workshop, we will explore a framework for community wealth building, and the range of mechanisms communities are using to seed solutions, while cultivating economic justice and long-term community wealth building. You will hear from Nwamaka Agbo, CEO of the Kataly Foundation and Managing Director of the Restorative Economies Fund (REF), who will offer a workshop on restorative economics and share stories of community stewards who are developing and implementing strategies to resource community plans in ways that restore community wealth.

Accompanying Applied Peer Cypher (no additional registration fee)
Everyone registered for the August 22nd workshop is invited to a follow-up applied practice peer cypher. This is an online space where folks can bring real-time challenges and scenarios they are grappling with to “workshop” with a small group of their peers, applying lessons from the workshop to their daily work. Upon registering to the main workshop, you will receive an invitation to the peer cypher. No one is required to bring a challenge to workshop. We can learn just as much by participating in workshopping another's challenge! Hope to see you there!
Date/time: Tuesday, September 5th from 9:00-11:30am PST / 12 noon-1:30pm EST. Register here!.
