Mapping Community Assets to Build Wildfire Resilience - June 26-28 in Santa Fe
Save the date for our first Fire Adapted New Mexico community workshop featuring community asset-mapping, a strategy for finding and connecting community strengths to build local capacity to live well with fire.
The 2.5 day workshop will cover basic principles of community asset mapping and guide individuals and groups in devising ways to apply hands-on practices where they live and work. Participants will develop a practical understanding of how community asset mapping can support and advance their fire adaptation goals, and how to avoid common pitfalls of working with grass-roots initiatives. While the workshop will emphasize fire adaptation and resilience, community asset mapping is a useful approach to addressing other community planning challenges.
The workshop will be facilitated by Jana Carp, who has been working in asset-based community development for 20 years and now works with communities threatened by wildfire in Northern California.
