Exploring Community Resilience
What is Community Resilence?How do we build it?Why does it matter?At a time in increasing economic, social and environmental turbulence, a growing number of people are asking whether – and if so how – our communities and society at large can cope Fortunately, there is already a good body of practical and theoretical know-how about weathering storms – and even thriving through them. This is resilience thinking and practice. Although resilience approaches are well established for helping individual adults and children recover from shocks, and new movements such as transition towns are contributing many insights, there is a gap when it comes to working with communities as a whole. This publication is a contribution to filling that gap.
