We are facing an increasingly uncertain and complex future, exacerbated by interconnected crises, from climate change and biodiversity loss to rapid urbanisation and rising inequality. The time to act is rapidly closing and no one sector or organisation can tackle the world’s biggest problems or deliver the solutions we need alone. Resilience Rising was launched in January of 2022 out of a realisation that working in silos is a barrier to real progress at the pace and scale the world needs. The societal challenges we face are intersectional and require a holistic, systemic approach – one where promising solutions, insights, and learnings can be rapidly disseminated and scaled, and where diverse voices and perspectives are brought into key conversations and decision-making.
Through an innovative consortium model, we convene essential communities of practice, from businesses and policymakers to engineers and infrastructure owners and operators, to harness the power of collaboration, spur systemic and inclusive change, and tackle some of society’s most pressing problems with a proven, cross-cutting solution – resilience.
