Pam Cunningham and Dr. Keith Tidball will be presenting a 60 minute webinar about the Family Readiness System, the overarching umbrella term for networks and services for our military families.
The purpose of this webinar is to bring an awareness of the connectivity among the eXtension support available to the military community. We want the eXtension community to be aware of their military neighbors and vice versa. The Department of Defense has developed (in concert with UGA/UNC) training on community capacity building that is going to be available for everyone. Our military staff has been building relationships with the community for years and now this "collaboration" has a name - Community Capacity Building.
Keith Tidball, Ph.D., Senior Extension Associate in the Department of Natural Resources at Cornell University, serves as the leader of a suite of projects dealing with veterans and military families. He helps people leverage natural resources to organize, learn, and act in ways that increase their capacity to withstand, and where appropriate to grow from, environmental change and uncertainty. He focuses on efforts that nurture cultural and ecological diversity, create opportunities for civic participation, and that foster learning from different types of knowledge to increase community capacity and resilience.
