Thriving Resilient Communities

What if the community where YOU live was thriving and resilient, so that life for you, your family and friends, and your neighborhood was sustainable, just, compassionate, and healthy? What would it be like to live there? Just imagine…

Millions of people are building what we call the “thrivingresilience meta-movement,” an unimaginable wealth of community initiatives with similar visions using different perspectives such as Compassionate, Healthy, Livable, Local, Peace, Resilient, Sustainable, Thrive, and Transition. All these movements come to ground in a common set of local ecosocial systems: food, water, air, land, biodiversity, energy, emergency response, buildings, health, education, community welfare, government, business, economy, transportation, communications, etc.

The Thriving Resilient Communities Collaboratory (TRCC) connects the growing community resilience movement to more of itself in support of large-scale social transformation towards a just and thriving society. We are an action learning community of practice that hosts deep dialogues and gatherings, seeds and incubates collaborative projects, and fosters synergy among North American leaders including Art of Hosting, BayLocalize, Bioneers, Evolver, Movement Generation, PostCarbon Institute, Shareable, TransitionUS, and more.

TRCC uses the latest complex systems models to develop its networking processes and techniques. We work with emergence through probing/sensing cycles of weaving inquiries and co-lab collaboration working groups. We hope our stories, tools and approaches, and movement maps are useful to you and your thriving resilient community.
