Virtual Resilience Lab series – Part I: Fostering a ‘nature-first’ global culture to ensure environmental stewardship’

Resilience Frontiers is a foresight-driven initiative and aims at harnessing the potential of paradigm-shifting frontier technologies and emerging social trends towards long-term global resilience. The initiative responds to the deep societal transformations and maximizes our collective resilience to complex challenges including climate change beyond 2030.

Resilience Frontiers convened the Virtual Resilience Lab series between July and September 2020, as a continuation of its effort to engage global thought leaders. The outputs from this series are feeding into the roadmapping phase of the initiative.

Part I of the Virtual Resilience Lab series took place on 29–30 July, with a focus on ‘Fostering a ‘nature-first’ global culture to ensure environmental stewardship’.

This two-day event covered the following topics, which correspond to the first three pathways (among the eight pathways) of Resilience Frontiers:

  • Pathway 1: Transforming humanity’s interface with nature, building on indigenous values
  • Pathway 2: Applying lifelong learning for environmental stewardship
  • Pathway 3: Ensuring universal equitable coverage of, and open access to, big data and information, and related benefits to human wellbeing
