A great new film resource: ‘Surfing the Waves of Change’
I know that many of you found the ‘Powerdown Show’ series a really useful resource. Well now the Cultivate Centre in Ireland are back with a new film ‘Surfing the Waves of Change’, released today. This is a 9 minute animation, which uses surfing as a metaphor to introduce the concept of community resilience. It explores how we can best take the steps to ensure that the places where we are living have the ability to get by in times of abrupt change and are brilliant places to live. The film accompanies a new publication from Carnegie UK Trust called, ‘Exploring Community Resilience in Times of Rapid Change’. It’s rather wonderful.
A new Cultivate website which will host this film and the 10 Powerdown Shows along with other Cultivate learning resources is also being launched. Over the years Cultivate have really led the way in producing accessible, high-quality resources, and this new addition is no exception. It is designed to be a useful resource for Transition initiatives, and I’m sure it will be.
