What is Resilience ?

People and Place combine to form Community.

People have connections with Places for many reasons. Communities are shaped by the Places in which they exist. Places are shaped by People, not always taking into account the protection of the Place. Communities are created by and of people and shape the people in them.

This project will look at how the connections between people, place and community can create resilience. This project seeks to find resilience approaches or tools in each of these three areas, catalogue them and discuss and explore how each model, method, resource, technique or organisation can be used to promote resilience in the other two aspects and create a common methodology for resilience.

3 main topics of the project: 

  • New innovative curricula/educational methods/development of training courses
  • Civic engagement / responsible citizenship
  • Social entrepreneurship / social innovation
