Resilience - buzzword or useful concept?
2012 (debates in English)

Key word: Resilience /

As part of the Resilience project, Groupe URD, CARE Nederland and the Disaster Studies group of Wageningen University organised the 8th Autumn School, that has been hold 29-31 October 2012 at Groupe URD’s headquarters in Plaisians (Drôme Provençale, France), which addressed the following issue: “Resilience” - buzzword or useful concept?

The aim of this event has been to bring together between 30 and 40 experts (EC representatives, UN agencies, NGOs or research institutes, etc...), to discuss the issues of resilience over two days. It allowed certain key points to be explored, the results of the research project to be presented and the issues involved in the concept of Resilience to be debated in detail.

The conference used the Open Space method, an approach which encourages creativity, collaboration and personal engagement and which will allow each participant to take an active role in the debates. All the workshops and presentations has been hold in English.
