A Resilient Response to Our Planetary Crisis
From Jeff Layne
Communications Manager, Transition US
We live in uncertain times, but across the country and around the world people are taking practical, creative action to slow climate change and regenerate communities and ecosystems. At the same time, they are building resilience to the converging ecological and economic challenges we face. In this presentation, Marissa Mommaerts shares the concept of resilient communities as a practical model for attaining sustainability. She explains that the patterns of resilient communities include: healthy ecosystems; localized food, energy, and economic systems; community stewardship of the commons; people-centric (as opposed to car-centric) neighborhoods; a sense of community; and more.
