Why join Resilient Society?

We are ResilientSociety, a coalition of universities, companies, governments and many other organisations.

We bring people from around the world together so that they can effectively combine their creativity, expertise, resources, entrepreneurial spirit and insights to develop new ideas, understandings, products and services. These can be presented as business cases, new knowledge and/or open source solutions. To this end, we offer an online platform to engage our community of members and partners in both online and offline collaboration.
