Resilient You: What To Do in an Emergency (Now That We've Defined Resilience)

Resilient You: What To Do in an Emergency (Now That We've Defined Resilience) This video was recorded live on March 23rd, 2012 at the Future Tense event, Defining Resilience. The ability to bounce back, to absorb shocks, to persevere, to retain functionality over time, to endure, to adapt, to succeed, to survive, to sustain... so many verbs are conjured up by the term "resilience." Whether we're talking about our bodies, our minds, our communities, our institutions or our natural environment, the R-word provides a conceptual framework for designing a better tomorrow. Please join us for a wide-ranging inquiry on what it means to be resilient and what a resilient future could look like.
