The Resilience Now Summer Series addresseed the current crisis by bringing together the right cross-section of leaders and changemakers needed in this moment for our recovery and beyond. This creative and action-oriented group is focusing on catalytic tools for building wellbeing, shaping economies beyond GDP, expanding resilient food systems, and rebalancing the human relationship with nature. Our curated Forum community puts the right people in the room, this year it was the virtual room, to drive the actions we need now.
