The programming of the Center for Resilient Communities revolves around collective
inquiry that connects, deepens, and inspires action. Collective inquiry means
that we facilitate a process of shared learning and experimentation. We read together.
Speak with thought leaders. Dialogue about challenges, problems and solutions. Our
commitment to collective inquiry is not short term. We intend to hold this conversation
and gather insights together over the course of many years, even decades. Each
year, in consultation with its participants, the Center will establish a calendar
of speaker events, reading groups and more designed to inspire exploration into
the essential qualities for constructive social, economic and environmental change.
We hope that the learning from our collective inquiry will not only nourish our
circle of participants but extend outward to influence discourse in society at
