Welcome to the Thriving Resilient Communities Collaboratory!

At a Glance:
The Thriving Resilient Communities Collaboratory (TRCC) networks and builds capacity for community resilience leaders working at the regional and translocal scale in the USA. We bring together diverse stakeholders to collaborate and allocate resources together, to share best practices and build organization capacity. Through relationships and trust, we form collaborative projects to build movement capacity. Some of the organizations we bring together include Art of Hosting, BayLocalize, Bioneers, New Economy Coalition, Post Carbon Institute, Shareable, Transition US and more.

What is resilience?
Resilience is a community’s ability to adapt and thrive in changing conditions instead of collapsing during a shock. Resilience is not about “bouncing back.” Instead, it is about “bouncing forward” to address the root causes of inequities and unsustainable resource use at the heart of social and environmental crises like climate, poverty, and health so that our communities can be better than before.

This site hosts an overview of our programs, impact and multi-stakeholder approach. Whether you are new to the resilience movement or looking to collaborate and increase your impact, you’ll find resources and connections here.
