one day : Day One – Resilience is a participatory artwork that connects with cities around the world that are committed to becoming more resilient in their approach to the future.
one day our world will change. Our cities, communities, our organisations and the people we know and love will all be affected by changes to the climate, to business, the economy, technology and society. How can we be more resilient and bounce back quickly from these coming shocks and stresses to our day-to-day lives?
What if today were Day One? What if we could see what the future has in store for us, and learn to bounce back more effectively? How might we act if that future were now? How can we share this resilient-thinking around the world, and learn from each other’s ways of bouncing back to our best?
one day : Day One – Resilience asks these questions by looking at particular resilience challenges faced by different cities, and finds a way to connect and showcase the work being done by individual and organisations to face those challenges. The project creates feedback loops of resilient-thinking – online, at events, and in public spaces – to empower people and organisations to become resilience strategists, for themselves and for the global community.
one day : Day One – Resilience has been created by Sara Zaltash in partnership with the Schumacher Institute in Bristol, UK. The project is currently supported by Quartet Community Foundation, Bristol Green Capital Partnership, Bristol City Council, Knowle West Media Centre, the Festival of Ideas and 100 Resilient Cities Bristol.
