Resilience and Radical Change Bundle
In a constantly changing world that is undeniably experiencing fragmentation, climate crisis, and resource depletion, our need to respond is active and alive and burning with a desire for solutions. The Resilience and Radical Change Bundle compiles essential books from leading authors that all offer a different perspective to a very common question: How do we model the change we see we need? With these five books, you will be left stimulated, activated, and empowered.

Inspired by Octavia Butler’s explorations of our human relationship to change, Emergent Strategy is radical self-help, society-help, and planet-help designed to shape the futures we want to live. Change is constant. The world is in a continual state of flux. It is a stream of ever-mutating, emergent patterns.
Rather than steel ourselves against such change, this book invites us to feel, map, assess, and learn from the swirling patterns around us in order to better understand and influence them as they happen. This is a resolutely materialist “spirituality” based equally on science and science fiction, a visionary incantation to transform that which ultimately transforms us.
Seeing Systems: Peace, Justice, and Sustainability
Six-Session Coursebook from Northwest Earth Institute
How does one mold such complex principles as peace, justice and sustainability into a coherent story? The difficulty reflects the media’s broader struggle to convey how these themes are mutually linked. Seeing Systems: Peace, Justice and Sustainability connects the dots between three of society’s most pressing challenges and helps participants find pathways for powerful change in our everyday lives. NWEI’s self-led discussion courses are designed to spark shared learning, shared stories, and shared action. Each course book also includes tips and guidelines to help facilitators organize a course.
Resilience, Community Action and Societal Transformation
By Thomas Henfrey, Gesa Maschkowski & Gil Penha-Lopes
Resilience, Community Action and Societal Transformation is a unique collection bridging research, theory and practical action to create more resilient societies. It includes accounts from people and organizations on the front line of efforts to build community resilience; cutting-edge theory and analysis from engaged scholar-activists; and commentary from sympathetic researchers.
Its content ranges from first-hand accounts of the Transition Movement in the UK, Canada and Spain, to theoretical reflections on resilience theory and the shifts in mindsets and perspectives required for transitions to sustainability.
Resources and Stories about Creating Eco-Resilience in Intentional Community. Wisdom of Communities is a book series distilling and compiling all of the lessons learned from the communities movement, gleaned from over 40 years of Communities magazine publications.
In Volume 4 “Sustainability in Community” we focus on food, water, shelter, energy, land, permaculture, ecovillage design, eco-education, and resilience in cooperative culture. These areas will prove more and more essential in allowing communities to navigate changing circumstances on our planet, while growing into new, regenerative ways of living and thriving together.
Real hope comes from looking unflinchingly at our current circumstances and then committing wholeheartedly to creative action. Never has that been more urgently needed than right now, with the climate crisis looming larger every day.
Together Resilient looks at intentional community as a model for a low carbon future. While looking realistically at the state of the world and the realities of climate disruption, it finds hope in examples of communities that already live high quality lives that the planet can sustain.
It also looks at community as an essential element for surviving the coming (and already present) changes with more resilience and grace, and offers concrete examples of building community as a tool for reducing carbon emissions, outside the context of residential intentional communities.
