Resilient Homeland: Keep Calm and Carry On

Resilient Homeland: Keep Calm and Carry On This panel was recorded live at the March 23rd, 2012 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.
