I’ve been thinking a lot about resilience lately. It seems like this word shows up everywhere. Resilience, to me, is how you bounce after a big change - and we certainly have had our share of change. I have equated resilience with a sense of slowness as I find myself being more deliberate and reflective. My family has been spending more time together. My kids are mowing neighbors’ grass with our new electric lawnmower. We are taking more bike rides and walks together. We are making more homemade meals - and just recently have been able to incorporate a cucumber or two from our tiny garden. All these activities create time for conversations which in turn make us more connected, stronger, and resilient.
Our community resilience is evident too in the many ways that we are working together. We have a lot to share in this climate action newsletter that showcases our community resilience: resources for energy bills, national recognition of our fleet, results of funds well spent on climate action, improved EV charging stations, and new protected bike lanes.
Enjoy this newsletter!
