This event demonstrated excellent work by the Resilience Association to re-ignite the conversation and raise awareness surrounding the need for societal resilience to become a national priority, so together we can focus on building a more #ResilientNation. All of my conference reflections have led me to one place – to go on to truly think about the incredible work that has not been widely showcased, shared and amplified anywhere near enough; I could list numerous pieces and publications – but these are my highlights (in no specific order)
· HOUSE OF LORDS Select Committee on Risk Assessment and Risk Planning HL Paper 110 Report of Session 2021–22 Preparing for Extreme Risks: Building a Resilient Society
· The Centre for Long-Term Resilience: Future Proof The opportunity to transform the UK's resilience to extreme risks
· Sir Oliver Letwin - The Case for a New National Resilience Committee
· The Report by Reform ‘A state of preparedness: how government can build resilience to civil emergencies’.
· The British Red Cross: Ready for the future: Meeting people's needs in an emergency. Calling for people-centred systems, structures and legislation around emergencies in the UK.
So again thank you to the resilience association for enabling the conversation to continue, for raising awareness of the risks, the ever increasing need for #resilience across the spectrum; operationally, organizationally and nationally and for the #wholeofsociety.
