Day 2 @ Resilience Frontiers

It’s the end of day two at the Resilience Frontiers event – just launched at the Korea Global Adaptation week in Songdo, South Korea.

Resilience Frontiers is an interagency effort bringing together a diverse group of thinkers, creatives and futurists from across globe to revisit everything we think we know about what might happen to our fragile world.

Over the last two days we have looked at ‘probable futures’ in light of exponential technologies and fast-changing environments; and touched on ‘desirable futures’ – analysing their intrinsic values and imagining visions for our ideal lives. We shared an exercise in ‘moonshot thinking’ – looking forward to a positive goal, and ‘future literacy’ – imagining scenarios in a very different world. And re-framed it all by stepping out of our usual thinking, by adding some art, music and tin-foil sculptures. I’m looking forward to Day 3, and discovering how the process will develop, what the outcomes will be, and then communicating them in the weeks ahead.

Resilience Frontiers is an interagency effort undertaken by the UNFCCC secretariat in collaboration with Canada’s International Development Research Centre, EIT Climate-KIC, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the Global Water Partnership, the Green Climate Fund, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the United Nations Environment Programme, and the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs.
