Ukraine 2022

digital collage

The best example of resilience is found with the ukrainians who, despite the constant attack by the russians, continue to fight... meeting at key points and taking shelter underground for days and even weeks sharing public spaces, food, water, and electricity.

“…six foundations that appear necessary for community resilience-building efforts to be successful. And these are people, systems thinking, adaptability, transformability, sustainability, and courage.” Richard Heinberg

El mejor ejemplo de resiliencia lo encontramos en los ucranianos que, a pesar del constante ataque de los rusos, siguen luchando... reuniéndose en puntos clave para compartir espacios públicos, alimentos, agua y electricidad.

“…seis fundamentos que parecen necesarios para que los esfuerzos de construcción de resiliencia de la comunidad tengan éxito. Y estas son personas, pensamiento sistémico, adaptabilidad, transformabilidad, sostenibilidad y coraje”.

The Healer

Healers use natural ingredients to cure people of physical or mental ailments. They use herbal remedies to purify their spirit. Also, they use incense, shells, and prayers to build resilience in their people.

Volunteers work together to improve a space in our community. We have to meet frequently to keep it clean. Because of the garbage that passers-by discard. This section had become a polluted place. We clear and plant to renew the land and create an example of what the community can do with community resilience.

Voluntarios trabajamos juntos para mejorar un espacio de nuestra comunidad. Tenemos que reunirnos frecuentemente para mantenerlo limpio . A causa de la basura que los transeúntes descartan .Esta sección se había convertido en lugar contaminado . Limpiamos y sembramos para renovar la tierra y crear un ejemplo de lo que la comunidad puede hacer con resiliencia.comunitaria.

“It’s both ethical and practical for community members to be at the heart of community resilience building work,” Richard Heinberg

This tree was cut seven years ago, but every year during the rainy season, his executioner prunes it down. The trees' resilience is no match for their human executioners. “Resilience is often thought of as the ability to withstand hard times or shocks, and to “bounce back” from a disaster” Richard Heinberg

Este árbol fue cortado hace siete años, pero cada año durante la temporada de lluvias su verdugo lo poda. La resistencia de los àrboles no es rival para sus verdugos humanos. "La resiliencia a menudo se considera como la capacidad de resistir a tiempos difíciles o conmociones y de "recuperase" de un desastre"

“We humans are both selfish and sociable creatures. If we want to adapt successfully to a future of less energy per capita, and little or no economic growth, then we might be better off with a little more sociability and a little less selfishness.” Richard Heinberg

Recycling buildings is a permanent dynamic between destruction and construction. “Policies worldwide recognize that the construction sector needs to take immediate action to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, tackle the climate crisis, and limit resource depletion, with a focus on adopting a circular economy approach in construction to ensure the sustainable use of construction materials The practices at the core of a circular economy, such as repairing, recycling, refurbishing, or repurposing, are equally novel. All of these strategies have the aim of keeping materials in use – whether as objects or as their raw components – for as long as possible. And all are hardly revolutionary.” Maikel Kuijpers
