Resilience And Sustainability

http://www.vpr.net/audio/programs/84/2013/03/vpr-vermont-edition-20130319.mp3

Environmentalists and climate change activists have spent years pushing to create a more sustainable planet. But what if the idea of sustainability itself is no longer enough in an increasingly volatile world? Futurist Andrew Zolli has written a new book about the concept of resilience- the ability to adapt to changed circumstances while still maintaining one's core purpose- and it has inspired some high level thinking at Vermont's Agency of Natural Resources.

We'll hear have a conversation with Andrew Zolli and Deborah Markowitz, Secretary of the Agency of Natural Resources, about how the concept of resilience could be applied to Vermont.

Also on the program, we'll get an update from the Red Cross aboutLocal Disaster Shelter Initiative.
