Think Resilience Course: Review, Assessment, and Action! Art Call

“If you want to apply what you have learned in this course, one way to do so might be to design and implement a community resilience assessment. Why an assessment? It’s important to understand a system as much as possible before intervening in it. For this final lesson, it’s especially useful to review some of the Suggested Reading items; each provides useful insights into assessing community resilience.

Think Resilience Course

“Acting without this understanding
is like putting a bandage on a life-threatening injury.”

Richard Heinberg 2015
Richard Heinberg

Think Resilience is hosted by Richard Heinberg, one of the world’s leading experts on the urgency and challenges of moving society away from fossil fuels.

We live in a time of tremendous political, environmental, and economic upheaval. What should we do?

Think Resilience is an online course offered by Post Carbon Institute to help you get started on doing something. It features twenty-two video lectures—about four hours total—by Richard Heinberg, one of the world’s foremost experts on the urgency and challenges of transitioning society away from fossil fuels. Think Resilience is rooted in Post Carbon Institute’s years of work in energy literacy and community resilience. It packs a lot of information into four hours, and by the end of the course you’ll have good start on two important skills:

1. How to make sense of the complex challenges society now faces. What are the underlying, systemic forces at play? What brought us to this place? Acting without this understanding is like putting a bandage on a life-threatening injury.

2. How to build community resilience. While we must also act in our individual lives and as national and global citizens, building the resilience of our communities is an essential response to the 21st century’s multiple sustainability crises.
