Taught by: Richard Heinberg

We live in a time of tremendous political, environmental, and economic upheaval. What should we do?

Think Resilience is an online course to help you get started on doing something. It consists of 22 video lectures—about four hours total—by Richard Heinberg, one of the world’s foremost experts on the urgency and challenges of transitioning society away from fossil fuels. View the introductory video here, or scroll down for more information.

Think Resilience is offered by Post Carbon Institute and based on our years of work in energy literacy and community resilience. We’ve packed a lot of information into four hours, and by the end of the course you’ll have good start on two important skills:

  1. How to make sense of the complex challenges society now faces. What are the underlying, systemic forces at play? What brought us to this place? Acting without this understanding is like putting a band-aid on a life-threatening injury.
  2. How to build community resilience. While we must also act in our individual lives and as national and global citizens, building the resilience of our communities is an essential response to the 21st century’s multiple sustainability crises.

 

You can take Think Resilience at your own pace in the Self-Directed Course. Or, you can participate in a six-week Guided Course facilitated by Richard Heinberg in live webinar sessions (the next Guided Course has not yet been scheduled; if you’d like to know when it is available, add yourself to the notification list).
