A 12-Workshop Series on Community-Driven Planning for Racial and Climate Justice - Vision Power Solutions
A 12-WORKSHOP SERIES ON COMMUNITY-DRIVEN PLANNING FOR RACIAL AND CLIMATE JUSTICE
April 2021 - March 2022
Top-down decision-making and conventional city planning concentrates power in the hands of those who profit from exploitation and extraction. Community-Driven Planning flips that script by putting the planning process in the hands of grassroots organizations and resident leaders rooted in frontline communities.
How do communities define and design for themselves? How do we define our own challenges, identify our own assets and strengths, our priorities, our biggest threats and our unique approaches to resilience, climate, and justice? This workshop series, [hosted by the National Association of Climate Resilience Planners with Facilitating Power and the NAACP], builds facilitative leadership capacity among facilitators, organizers, leaders, and educators from (and accountable to) Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities.
The content in this workshop series is based on the Framework for Community-Driven Climate Resilience Planning and is driven by the voices of grassroots leaders from across the country who exemplify Community Vision, Power, & Solutions.
