Resilience Rising is a global platform for collective impact, working with a broad constellation of partners towards a safe, resilient, and prosperous future for all.

Our Approach

We are facing an increasingly uncertain and complex future, exacerbated by interconnected crises, from climate change and biodiversity loss to rapid urbanization and rising inequality. The time to act is rapidly closing and no one sector or organization can tackle the world’s biggest problems or deliver the solutions we need alone.

Through a collective impact model, Resilience Rising convenes a broad constellation of key communities and partners, from businesses and policymakers to built environment experts and future leaders, who are essential to driving the urgent change we need. Together we are harnessing the power of collaboration, spurring systemic and inclusive change, and tackling some of society’s most pressing problems with a proven, cross-cutting solution – resilience.
