Test your resilience with EARTH EX – last chance to play before 31 October

EARTH EX closes on 31 October so register today to play this global resilience exercise and see how you would cope in a power outage.

New York, Argentina, London. With major cities and countries across the globe affected by power outages in 2019, more people have experienced the broader impacts on our infrastructure and on society that a loss of power supply can bring.

Organisations and individuals are often unprepared for extended power failures. Now they can test these scenarios by participating in the EARTH EX black sky simulation. Xavi Aldea explains why this matters and how it can help to better prepare for resilience.

In our hyperconnected world, any extreme regional disaster could quickly become a complex catastrophe. EARTH EX addresses this risk by hosting all nation, all sector resilience collaboration and training for complex catastrophes. It helps corporate and government teams, community leaders, individuals and families anywhere in the world to build interconnected resilience planning to sustain our future.

Xavier Aldea Borruel is leading the Resilience Shift’s work on energy resilience including the partnership with the Electric Infrastructure Security Council to expand their EARTH EX methodology as a way to be better prepared for black sky events. We asked him to explain the benefits of taking part in EARTH EX 2019.

Xavi explains what a black sky event is, what can go wrong without power and how critical services can be affected. He highlights what organisations can learn from participating in EARTH EX in terms of being able to understand their interdependencies and be better prepared for such situations.

The exercise can be played until 31 October 2019. Register here.
