Building Local Resilience
In Response To Global Challenges 

9th Annual Film & Discussion Series

Inspired by the unprecedented challenges our global community faced in 2020. The 9th Annual Film & Discussion Series focused its four monthly programs on local resilience in response to some of these challenges. We highlighted local initiatives that aim to build community resilience in the face of urban food insecurity, housing insecurity, and unhealthy large and small-scale agricultural practices. We looked at the creativity of our Hudson Valley communities that create solution-oriented initiatives. The 9th Annual Film & Discussion Series offered a chance to learn how these amazing local programs are making positive changes as well as ways we can make simple changes in our own lives for maximum impact. 

Thank you to all that joined us for the 9th Annual Film & Discussion Series. We wrapped up our series in late April, but you can enjoy recordings of all of these events on Youtube. Thank you so much to everyone involved!
