The world is facing some great challenges. Climate change, peak oil, food security, biodiversity loss, economic instability and social unrest are all problems that are set to make the world we live in unstable. Looking to the future, one of the few things we can be sure of is that the world will change considerably. The exact nature of this change is impossible to predict, but it is unlikely to be a smooth, predictable transition.
We need to design ways of living that allow us to react to sudden, dramatic and unpredictable changes. Our economies, communities and the infrastructure that support them must be able to absorb shocks and keep working. We must make our world more resilient.
Our approach is to address complex issues with engaging articles written in plain English.
