This article defines community resilience as the ability for a community to respond to change and disruption while still maintaining its general function, structures, form and identity. This concept is much like our studies of envirodynamics and humans living in harmony with nature.
Students will research the climate in society today as to the question of resilience planning. Students should review the question of urgency or lacicity as it exists in society today. The focus of your work should include an evaluation of the question of consciousness, is there a sense of urgency present, or a feeling of vulnerability or powerlessness noted?
Students will prepare a 2-3 page paper summarizing the sentiment of their results. Students should reflect on the topics discussed in this week’s reading assignment, lecture and discussion boards. Students will also include their personal view on the subject of climate resilience planning and the impact of urban planning projects.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resilience_in_the_built_environment
