Indicators for Assessing Resilience in Communities

We're excited to introduce the Indicators for Assessing Resilience in Communities (ARC), a tool for Transition groups to greatly scale up their impact by clearly identifying areas where their communities currently lack resilience and providing strategic direction in building a place-specific, high-impact plan of action.


In the first phase of this project, Transition US worked with experts in the field including Post Carbon Institute Fellow Warren Karlenzig, Kristen Sheeran from Ecotrust, Michelle Colussi from the Canadian Center for Community Renewal, the Happiness Initiative’s Laura Musikanski, and Bay Localize’s Kirsten Schwind, to survey existing resources and inform indicator design.


Read more in Michelle Colussi's report on existing community resilience models and toolkits.


Stay tuned for the Indicators for Accelerating Resilience in Communities tool, coming this fall, and contact if you are interested in piloting ARC in your community!
