The New School at Commonweal hosted The Resilience Gathering in 2019, including keynote speakers Nate Hagens and Joanna Macy, leading authorities in the resiliency field. They engaged several dozen participants on these core questions:
- Can we avoid civilization collapse?
- Can we “bend” and not “break”?
- We face a “perfect storm” of interacting global stressors. Is resilience a possible response?
- What does real resilience look like?
In this panel talk given at The Resilience Gathering, Joanna Macy guides us on how to suffer with the world and make responsible decisions that take into account our interconnectedness with all that is.
