Sustainability: Resilient Design and Adaptation Stories

Recently I started following Alex Wilson's blog at the Resilient Design Institute.  In his most recent post he shared a wonderful story and a link to an introductory video.  The story was created by two young women who completed their Masters at the University of Michigan's School of Natural Resources in 2013.  Last summer they set out on a journey across the United States to see first hand how people and communities have focused on adaptation to climate change.  They traveled through 31 states racking up about 17,000 miles and interviewed hundreds of people.  Their travel and interview results are captured in 38 informative and inspirational stories posted on their blog, Adaptation Stories.

Check out their video and some of their inspiring stories on a wide range of topics on adaptation and resilience.  In addition, I think that Resilient Design Institute and Alex's blog are also excellent resources to broaden perspectives on sustainable practice.
