Building community resilience ultimately has to come to grips with the infrastructure that enables any community to function. Think Resilience looks at food, water, energy, and money systems, and how these can be made more resilient. If any one of these essentials goes haywire, a community loses its support capacity very quickly.

Education—particularly early-childhood education—not only sets the foundation for who we become in later life, but also shapes society as a whole. If we want a more resilient society and more resilient communities, we have to plant the seeds today in students both young and old. We need education that trains people in both community and personal resilience-building.

Systemic inequality reduces the sustainability and resilience of society as a whole. Capital tends to reproduce itself and become more consolidated and centralized over time—that’s its purpose—but only some members of society are motivated or able to set aside money and goods for the purpose of capital accumulation. Inequality is also created, sustained, and worsened over time through institutionalized racism, which results in chronic conditions of poverty and lack of access. Ultimately, promoting equity will require strategies like cooperative ownership of business and expanding the commons—the cultural and natural resources that should be accessible to all members of a society, and not privately owned.

The local challenges created by globalization can be partly countered by economic localization. It starts with communities supporting local business rather than giving subsidies such as tax breaks and free utility hook-ups to large, non-local businesses, as is so often done. In fact, half of all private-sector U.S. jobs are still provided by small businesses, and almost all of these
businesses are local. Moreover, local dollars have a multiplier effect—when spent within the regional economy, they increase local wealth, local taxes, jobs, charitable contributions, tourism, and entrepreneurship. Local economic development benefits everyone—except maybe big multinational corporations.
