The notion of resilience has been around for decades but has gained importance as we witness disruption in many major systems (e.g., economic, climate, biodiversity, equity, and human health) and wonder whether we are nearing any irreversible tipping points.
The Covid-19 pandemic is the latest crisis we find ourselves in. As nations around the world are gaining control of the virus through vaccines and social health measures, there is a loud call to “build back better”, namely in terms of building more resilience into our systems. We believe the lessons learned from studying the energy and matter flows as well as redundancy and network relations that have allowed our ecosystems to sustain for millennia area good starting point for discovering general principles for system design and function.
Join us for a series of talks followed by a discussion that explores a range of topics and offers new perspectives on ecological systems thinking and networks.
