2023 Looking Forward, Looking Back: Strengthening Resilience Today

The Alaska Tribal Resilience Learning Network invites your community to apply for a forthcoming training series that includes a community-based workshop to assist with planning for and responding to impacts from climate change.

The Looking Forward, Looking Back: Strengthening Resilience Today (SRT) training series will support communities taking steps to address local issues and concerns related to our warming Alaskan climate. Community leadership interested in building their collective understanding of a rapidly changing Alaskan climate are encouraged to apply as a team.

While there is no cost for the training series, we stress that community team members commit to fully attending and participating in all training and be open to working together as a community team and with the broader project facilitator team.
