Resilience Shift » Resilience Rising

Following five successful years, The Resilience Shift has now transitioned to Resilience Rising, a new platform for collective impact that convenes essential communities of practice to make systemic resilience the norm. Resilience Rising builds on the insights, learning, knowledge and relationships pioneered by The Resilience Shift, a 5-year programme supported by Lloyd’s Register Foundation and hosted by Arup.

We are thankful to Lloyd’s Register Foundation and Arup for allowing us to accelerate the theory and practice of resilience. We are now continuing and expanding this important work through Resilience Rising.

If you are looking for a Resilience Shift publication or article, please head to our new Resource Library where you will find hundreds of reports, videos and insights.
