< Back to All Squares

"A thread of connectivity runs through resilient systems. For both community and ecological resilience, recognition and celebration of those connections contributes to the resilience of the system. Here, the stream spills over the edge into a waterfall, spills into the ocean, with fish swimming in the depths on the bottom of the square. The mountains that frame the ocean, merge with the soil and substrate from which the vegetation grows, then connect with the the rock cliff that perches above the stream. Connectivity is at the heart of resilience."
