This is the first of the collaborative Omega, Impact Trust, We Contain Multitudes Resilience Practitioner Series, a peer-led deliberative dialogue-based conversation series with a global community seeking to navigate the polycrisis. Resilience Practitioner Series dialogues are led by practitioners from across our networks. They seek to create a safe, but frank, space for dialogue intended to bring a fresh element of global perspective and new opportunities for collaboration. In this conversation, Dr Manu Gupta will reflect on the efforts of SEEDS to explore and reimagine ways in which local communities are responding in times of disaster and how shifting power into the hands of local communities strengthens preparedness and resilience.

Top-down systems have long disempowered the very people with the deepest knowledge of local contexts. This prevents communities from making informed choices and building real resilience. SEEDS believes communities understand their own strengths and weaknesses best Preparedness must therefore be driven by inclusive community leadership and localized solutions.

We will explore strategies to amplify community voice, agency and capacity-building that move beyond one-size-fits-all, boutique approaches toward scaling principles that enable diverse communities to lead preparedness and response across recurrent, varied crises. This is one way to build societies that are truly resilient at their core.

This will be an interactive conversation on Zoom. Following the format of the EQ Lab’s Dialogic Innovation and Learning System (DILS), conversations are not intended to “find solutions”. Rather they seek to expand our ways of thinking and doing, to make space for different perspectives, shared insights and learnings to emerge. The dialogic approach allows contextual insights to emerge through meaningful participatory engagement.

Join us to discuss the role of communities in creating hope, agency and real change in times of disaster.

The live event will take place on Tuesday, 21st November 2023 at 8am PST / 4pm UK.
