Check out this upcoming webinar from the Security & Sustainability Forum:

Applying Resilience Thinking: Seven Principles for Building Resilience in Social-Ecological Systems

Wednesday, March 2nd

1:15-2:45 pm EST

Over the past decades, few concepts have gained such prominence as resilience, the capacity of a system to deal with change and continue to develop. There has been an explosion of research into ways to promote or undermine the resilience of various systems, be it a landscape, a coastal area or a city. However, the multitude of suggested factors that enhance resilience has led to a somewhat dispersed and fragmented understanding of what is critical for building resilience and how an understanding of these factors can be applied.

This webinar convenes authors of the publication with the same name to discuss seven principles that clarify how to apply resilience thinking and address the interactions among the underlying social and ecological systems.  The assessment was funded by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research and conducted by experts from the Stockholm Resilience Center, Stockholm University and Arizona State University.
