Dive into Resilience

SiG has produced an entire webinar series on topics related to social innovation, which you can find in our video collection. In our webinar with Frances Westley, she explored the related concepts of social innovation and resilience. She offers some theoretical frameworks which can be useful to those who want to assess the resilience of their idea, organization, or part of a system. In addition, these same thinking tools can help in developing strategies that focus on either building up or breaking down resilience in systems.

If you’re interested in more resilience theory, especially as it relates to innovative public policy, read this paper by Moore, Tjornbo, Holroyd and Westley. They examine new ways to approach policy development in order to support resilience across scales, from individuals to whole societies.

Note: A complete list of all SiG educational resources can be found in our publicly-available document library. We hope you’ve found this pathway to learning about resilience helpful.
