an action metanetwork dedicated to local communities where we all want to live
What if the community where YOU live were thriving and resilient, so that life for you, your family and friends, and your neighborhood was sustainable, just, compassionate, and healthy? What would it be like to live there? Just imagine…
Our local communities are already thriving and resilient in many ways, yet we face serious eco-social challenges such as violence and disease, economic instability and inequity, weather and climate change, and “peak oil” shortages of food, water, and energy. The road to thriving and resilience will take us into uncharted territory of learning how to really get along with each other wherever we live: within ourselves, our families and communities, and across the world.
Millions of committed people are creating what we call the thrivingresilience metamovement, an unimaginable wealth of community initiatives with similar visions using different perspectives such as Compassionate, Healthy, Livable, Local, Occupy, Peace, Resilient, Sustainable, Thrive, and Transition. All these movements come to ground in a common set of local ecosocial systems: food, water, air, land, biodiversity, energy, emergency response, buildings, health, education, community welfare, government, business, economy, transportation, communications, etc.
This website is a “connector” metanetwork hub co-hosted by a collaboratory of movement leaders, telling the story and weaving the collective wisdom of the field. It is intended to inspire and inform resilience change agents and to catalyze stronger coherence and collaboration within the North American metamovement.
This website is just being born. Visit us now and visit us later as the Collaboratory comes alive here!
