USGBC-LA Resilience Capacity Building Workshop at Ventura

VCCF Nonprofit Center; Community Room

4001 Mission Oaks Blvd. Camarillo, CA 93012

This is a free event.


After disasters, many organizations find themselves on the front lines of helping their communities respond in ways they never would have expected. Organizations, including community-based organizations, local governments, and local businesses, can be more effective before, during and after disasters by planning and building capacity in advance.

USGBC-LA, in partnership with Southern California Edison, is hosting a series of interactive workshops to help organizations develop their own roadmap for resilience.

These workshop-style trainings, based on the Building Resilience-LA process, walk participants through real-world examples to illustrate the key concepts of resilience and how they can be applied. Drawing from the fields of sustainability, public health and risk management with a strong equity lens, the Building Resilience process helps participants focus on energy, water, transportation, food systems and jobs in new and integrated ways, creating opportunity for improved performance and efficiency in normal times and safety and continuity in times of stress.

The purpose of this project is to increase the capacity of community members, including community¬ based organizations, local government personnel and small businesses to adapt to climate change and promote local physical, social and economic resilience, and sustainability.

Organizations interested in building their own resilience programs are encouraged to attend to chart out their own action plans.
