Building Resilient Communities in Greater Exeter
The first TEDx Exeter adventure took place at the Exeter Innovation Centre at the University of Exeter and featured guest speaker Cormac Russell and explored how to build resilient communities in Exeter.
The impact of this workshop was profound as Karime Hassan, Chief Executive and Growth Director of Exeter City Council, says “the Cormac Russell workshop… looked at asset based community development… The city does that now! There are 18 community connectors working with GP practices (and) there is an awful lot of infrastructure that’s been put in place simply because of that workshop’.“
