We created this report for people working in a Council and Local Authority setting in November 2021.
The report highlights what we believe Councils should be considering now under the heading of Adaptation and Community Resilience.
Do please get in touch with us if we can support you by being a “critical friend”.

Just Have Another Think from 28 July 2021
An excellent summary of all the things that are worth doing.
The 6R Framework
Originally conceived by Professor Jem Bendell as 4R’s – these are a series of questions designed to help you reflect on what’s most important now.
We added two more R’s: Re-Imagining and Reverence.
Here are the questions – in the panel to the right. Although asking yourself the questions is the most important thing, here are a few examples of the answers other people have generated in our workshops.
What is it that we most value and how can we keep that? How can we build and sustain our resilience – both inner and outer? What’s MOST important now?
What can we give up (even if we value it) in order not to make matters worse?
What can we bring back that has been lost?
Reconciliation & Reconnection
What can we do to make peace with, love and support others? How can we live with kindness, joy and peace?
How can we re-imagine and begin to create the ‘more beautiful world our hearts know is possible?
What do you want me to know? Who do you want me to be? What do you want me to do? (Asked of the Earth or Universe, Source, Universal Consciousness, God – whatever you prefer to call it)
