The question is: Do you understand the forces that are shaping economic change?

In support of the critical effort to build a global Resilience Intel collaboration, the Geoversiv Foundation and Citizens’ Climate Education are curating a news magazine on Flipboard called Building Resilience Intelligence (ResilienceIntel.news). The purpose of this publication is to collect in one place a wide range of news about breakthroughs toward a climate-smart future economy.

To provide the cultural, financial-sector, scientific, and multidisciplinary context for the Resilience Intel effort itself, this curated news magazine collects and collates the latest updates on renewable energy trends, carbon risk disclosure, climate-smart finance, and technological breakthroughs that will change the way we monitor and understand interactions between vastly diverse kinds of data.

NOTE: The vibrant green image at the top of this page is a photographic comment on resilience intelligence. We use it here as a reminder that: The layering of physical objects, behaviors and laws, with the metaphysical interactions we define as human need, preference, and insight, creates an overall organic system of complex, always evolving interactions. Only by building human capital and natural capital, in alignment with financial capital can we know our future economy is macro-critically resilient.
