Earth Ex Day

22 August, 2018

Join us and play the EarthEx resilience exercise.

At the Resilience shift, one of our key ways of working is to engage with pioneers in the field. The EIS Council has made some truly transformative steps towards raising awareness of black sky hazards, and creating tools, products and guidance, aimed at influencing collaborations between stakeholders to create a shift in resilience. Their 2018 summit showed us how much work there is in this space for us to learn from.

The Earth Ex resilience exercise, taking place on 22 August this year has the potential to really unlock interactions and interdependencies between sectors, in a much more powerful way than simply talking about it. In our hyperconnected world, any “Black Sky” event would quickly become a complex catastrophe, worldwide. The Mission EARTH EX addresses this unprecedented global risk by hosting unprecedented, interactive, all-sector, all-nation exercises. 2018 sees the second annual Emergency All-sector Response Transnational Hazard Exercise™.

For organizations, as an out-of-the-box senior level exercise, it provides an opportunity to examine and rehearse critical executive and operational decisions required before a full operational exercise.

For individuals, families and community groups, it will help with basic preparations, and with planning that can help secure and sustain participants during an extreme disaster.
