Community Resilience


What makes some communities resilient and others not?

Super storms, floods, fires, economic shifts, and other events are part of our lives in the 21st century.  For those communities that have been spared thus far, let other communities tell you that they, too, thought it couldn’t happen to them (or happen to them again) but it did.  While we cannot always prevent these events from happening, we can focus on nurturing that which makes our communities able to persist and come alive in new and profound ways even in the face of adversity.

Learn strategies to identify, protect, and nurture those things that make a community better able to prepare, withstand, and recover from adverse situations.
