Community and Household Resiliency Course – Sept 5th


A one day Community and Household Resiliency workshop is offered this coming Saturday (Sept. 5) by Marshall Design Studio.

The guest tutor for this workshop is Michele Daly, one of Auckland’s premiere experts in the field of risk management and emergency planning.

Come spend an informative and invaluable day learning about resiliency and design as it applies to Auckland. We feel this workshop is critical for Aucklanders who care about sustainability, community resilience and family security.

Therefore we are offering this workshop to anyone interested on a koha basis.

Using Auckland as a case study we ask the question ‘how resilient are our communities to rapid, unpredictable change?’ and ‘how might we plan for long term resilience?’ In the workshop we will share strategies for improving local resilience and community response. This module is ideal for those working in government, community leaders, Transition groups, families and anyone wanting to upskill and develop practical know how about dealing with crisis and developing local resilience.
At the end of the day we will do a practical design activity developing relevant strategies for increasing resilience at household, community, and regional scales.

This workshop is part of the Auckland Modular Permaculture Design Certificate course offered by Marshall Design Studio. However, anyone is welcome to attend and the normal workshop fees do not apply for this module. We are asking for koha, which simply means for people to offer what they feel is appropriate for this training.

If you want to attend or would like more information contact us at or 021 562 995.

We encourage you to share this with your co-workers, friends, neighbours and loved ones. We hope to see you there.
