Shareable has teamed up with Post Carbon Institute (PCI) to curate a series of “How to Share” articles to align with their Think Resilience course. If you haven’t taken the course, we suggest you do that first. But even if you haven’t yet taken it, these guides can help you save money, reduce waste, and build community through sharing.
- How to go solar if you can’t put panels on your roof
- How to start a garden for non-gardeners
- How to create a successful collective
- How to convert a business into a worker-owned cooperative
- How to build a better neighborhood
- How to make a street car-free
- How to start a Repair Café
- How to start a community currency
- How to be a sharing economy organizer
Think Resilience is offered by Post Carbon Institute and based on their years of work in energy literacy and community resilience. They’ve packed a lot of information into four hours, and by the end of the course you’ll have a good start on two important skills:
- How to make sense of the complex challenges society now faces. What are the underlying, systemic forces at play? What brought us to this place? Acting without this understanding is like putting a band-aid on a life-threatening injury.
- How to build community resilience. While we must also act in our individual lives and as national and global citizens, building the resilience of our communities is an essential response to the 21st century’s multiple sustainability crises.
