Seth Schultz shares news from Race to Resilience at New York Climate Week, along with our new film series, Resilience Engineered, that can help you to build the business case for resilience in your organisation, and plans for the COP Resilience Hub.
Why we must put future generations at the heart of institutional and systems decision-making, as in the recommendations from the For Thought report, and from our own work setting up Youth Advisory Councils.
At all scales of leadership, we must deliver on aims to build a safe, sustainable and resilient future, whether through our strong support for global action, or through our business leaders choosing to shape their organisation’s future around transformative change.
It is crucial for businesses and the public sector to work together in a world facing deep uncertainties and complex interdependencies. The newly combined forces of The Resilience Shift and Resilience First is a route to driving resilience best practice at scale globally.
Over the next 15 years, the OECD has estimated that around $103 trillion investment is needed to support our ageing and deteriorating critical infrastructure systems globally. Is the civil engineering community ready to deliver this investment?
As much as Covid is revealing the strengths and vulnerabilities of our infrastructure, our supply chains, and our societies, it is also bringing to the fore the importance of this invisible infrastructure and the army of humans that support it day to day.
Honest reflections help us to learn from crisis and become better and more resilient leaders. Whether Cape Town’s Day Zero retrospectively, or now Covid-19 in real-time, when we’ve shared these reflections, the response has been phenomenal. People can learn, in a more dynamic way, to gain insight on what matters for resilience.
We’re working at a leadership level to unlock the opportunity of using engineers as a driving positive force for impact. The potential of post-Covid economic stimuli requires us to ensure that we are picking the right infrastructure projects to fund and then designing and building them with resilience in mind from the outset.
