At a Glance:
The Thriving Resilient Communities Collaboratory (TRCC) is a network of regional and national organization leaders who revitalize local communities across the USA. TRCC members help communities work across issues and cultures to build healthier food, water, energy, economic, policy, justice, and leadership systems.
TRCC brings together resilience leaders to collaborate, sharing best practices and building organization capacity. Through relationships and trust, we form collaborative projects to build movement capacity. Some of our members include Art of Hosting, Bloom Network, Movement Generation, New Economy Coalition, Rooted in Resilience, Post Carbon Institute, Shareable, Transition US and more.
What is resilience?
Resilience is a community’s ability to adapt and thrive in changing conditions instead of collapsing during a shock. Resilience is not about “bouncing back.” Instead, it is about “bouncing forward” to address the root causes of inequities and unsustainable resource use at the heart of social and environmental crises like climate, poverty, and health so that our communities can be better than before.
This site hosts an overview of our programs, impact and multi-stakeholder approach. Whether you are new to the resilience movement or looking to collaborate and increase your impact, you’ll find resources and connections here.
This video showcases some of our TRCC members' collaborative projects, which are peer reviewed and funded involving grantees in the grantmaking process. Enjoy!
