The Response

Oct 12, 2021

Last week we participated in a panel discussion during the Regenerative Communities Summit where we talked about how Crisis can be a Catalyst for Transformation. 

This episode features a recording of the second half of that event. We’ve decided to omit the presentations that were delivered by each panelist, so there are a few times when you’ll hear references to what was presented earlier. If you would like to watch the entire event, you can access the recording by registering for the summit at

The speakers in this episode have been addressing the challenges, crises, and disasters we’re currently facing while finding new and innovative ways to not only respond but to open new opportunities and to use the times we are living in as a way to build better, more resilient communities.
