Have you ever wondered what qualities enable certain people, organizations or communities to thrive despite unexpected challenges?

D4R is a full-day exploration of resilience as a strategy for thriving in an uncertain world. And a call to action to prepare for the crises and opportunities unfolding today.

D4R will empower you to explore resilience through a combination of presentations and workshops (in Open Space format). As an Open Space participant, you'll collaborate with innovators from the social enterprise, design thinking, transition town, network science, local economy, urban planning, green evangelical, open source, public media, and positive psychology communities to create a unique, cross-sector learning experience.

At D4R, you'll:

* Add resilience thinking to your strategy toolbox

* Build relationships across sectors by learning with diverse participants

* Take home valuable insights to apply in your life and work.

D4R is designed for those managing dramatic change in business and civil society, and are determined to thrive on the challenge.

HOW: Our speakers will talk about design thinking, resilience, and the commons in the morning to set the context. The afternoon will be Open Space. You're encouraged to facilitate a session on a topic of choice rethinking it from a resilience perspective.

All tracks are decided on by participants. You're strongly encouraged to facilitate a track on a topic that you're passionate about linking it to resilience. DELICIOUS BOX LUNCH PROVIDED to take into sessions.
