Workshop: Daily Acts: Scaling Up Grassroots Action Through Local Government Collaboration
October 4 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT
Partnerships with municipalities may be one of the most important and effective ways for local Transition Initiatives to scale up their work, particularly during this time when governments at all levels are searching for solutions to climate change, economic recovery, and disaster response. How can local Transition groups scale up our work through strategic partnerships with municipalities? What kinds of skills and assets are needed to position our network for these types of partnerships? Are government and grassroots collaborations the key to unleashing the power of community?
Hear success stories from Daily Acts, a people-powered organization based in Petaluma, CA and community partners on taking bold, people-powered climate policy and action.
