On June 6, 2019, we hosted The Resilience Gathering through The New School at Commonweal. Keynote speakers Nate Hagens and Joanna Macy, leading authorities in the field, engaged several dozen participants on these questions: Can we avoid civilizational collapse? Can we “bend” and not “break”? We face a “perfect storm” of interacting global stressors. Is resilience a possible response? What does real resilience look like?

We continue to host and participate in resilience gatherings with our partners.

Regrettably, our planned November 1st gathering has been cancelled due to wildfires and power outages in Northern California. The irony is not lost on us.

Our Vision and Values

The Resilience Project is grounded in human and environmental values.

We believe in:

  • Social, racial, and gender equity
  • Democracy, human rights, and the environment

The Earth Charter and Universal Declaration of Human Rights express these values.*
