The Think Resilience online course consists of 22 short videos (between 5 and 20 minutes long) that explore the interrelated crises of the twenty-first century, and what we as citizens, students, and community leaders can do to respond to them. The course is hosted by Post Carbon Institute Senior Fellow hosted by Richard Heinberg.
By taking Think Resilience you will:
- Deepen your understanding of the interactions between human and Earth systems.
- Become a better practitioner and advocate for sustainability.
- Make clearer sense of the complex issues society is facing.
- Learn how to take action to build community resilience.
Think Resilience is offered in two ways: the Self-Directed Course, which you can take at your own pace, and the six-week Guided Course featuring weekly webinars with Richard Heinberg and special guests. See below for more details. (We also support discussion groups and classroom use).
With the Think Resilience Self-Directed Course you can start on the lessons immediately and proceed at your own pace. Upon registering you get access to all the videos, lesson-specific suggested readings, and discussion forums where you can interact with other students on the topics covered.
If you would like to earn a Certificate of Course Completion, you must provide substantive answers to the seven quizzes that appear throughout the course. (If you do not want a certificate you may ignore the quizzes.)
The Think Resilience Guided Course is offered about twice a year. With registration you get access to all the videos, lesson-specific suggested readings, and discussion forums where you can interact with other students on the topics covered. Additionally, it features weekly group webinars with course host Richard Heinberg and special guests.
The next scheduled Guided Course will run January 10th through February 28th, 2019, with seven weekly webinars held on Thursdays at 11:00am Pacific / 2:00pm Eastern, starting January 17th. This is a special offering in partnership with Transition US, which supports grassroots sustainability and relocalization activism nationwide.
The first six weekly webinars will include guest speakers from Transition US. The seventh webinar will be hosted exclusively by Transition US and will focus on applying the course content to the specific needs of grassroots initiatives. All webinars will be recorded and available for later viewing.
A Certificate of Course Completion is available for students who participate in at least five of the webinars and complete the quizzes given after every few lessons.
MINI-GRANTS AVAILABLE! Transition groups with at least three members who complete this course are eligible to apply for mini-grants of up to $1,000 from Post Carbon Institute. Interested? Contact us for more details.
