Resilience 3.0 – how to join the eco-dots?
This workshop is about how systems thrive or fall – where we ‘join the eco-dots’ to build a bigger picture of the ‘collective resilience intelligence’.
This forms part of the University of Manchester program on ‘Climate Questions’ – feeding into the COP26 in November – from the University ranked best in class for contribution to the SDGs. It also follows from the synthesis workshop with the UKRI ‘Towards a Sustainable Earth’ program in the context of the Adaptation Research Alliance.
First we look at the ‘R word’ – resilience – with cross cutting inter-connections from previous workshops
Second we explore some fundamentals about how research works –
- Transformative adaptation / innovation – (how to study systems where the fundamental structure & logic is transforming?)
- Trans-boundary / synergistic co-benefits – (how to research ‘adaptation’ which is wholly inter-connected with other social, economic, cultural, political agendas);
- Trans-multi-plicity…. (how to work with multiple forms of knowledge – academic / policy / indigenous / other)
From these practical examples we aim to sketch out a next generation model for ‘joined up’ research & innovation.
