“Re­silience is all about be­ing able to over­come the un­ex­pected. Sus­tain­abil­ity is about sur­vival. The goal of re­silience is to thrive.”

– Ja­mais Cas­cio, Au­thor and Fu­tur­ist

Re­silient sys­tems are flex­i­ble, ca­pa­ble of re­spond­ing to changes. Re­silient peo­ple are also those who are able to “roll with the punches”, able to adapt, to evolve, to learn, and to chan­nel the in­her­ent po­ten­tial of un­ex­pected cir­cum­stances.

Change is, fa­mously, the only con­stant, and yet many of the changes we are see­ing in the nat­u­ral world to­day can seem fright­en­ing and over­whelm­ing. But, hope re­mains.

If, as in­di­vid­u­als, we can also em­brace change on a per­sonal level, if we can “be the change” that is so needed, each one of us can con­tribute in a very real way to the re­silience of our liv­ing planet.

To­gether, we have the po­ten­tial to en­sure that the fu­ture for Earth is one in which life thrives, in all of its sur­pris­ing, beau­ti­ful, and un­ex­pected ways.
