Introduction to Ecoresilience: 20 Principles with Linda Buzzell
As many observers have noted, the outlines of an emerging sustainable society are now clear and have been for some time. Scientists, practical inventors, permaculturists, and social analysts have created alternatives that are available for implementation. Yet most individuals, communities, and cultures take little action toward actually doing so. This inaction exposes the ultimate challenge of ecoresilience: not just what we might-or must-do, but how to rapidly shift enough human hearts and minds so we will take action collectively to prevent our own demise, and that of our descendants and the other remaining species with whom we share our rapidly warming planet.
This presentation will offer a big-picture understanding of why things are collapsing-and then share a simple set of ecoresilience principles for the redesign, restoration, and rebuilding of our community-and planetary-life-support systems.
