We are reframing ecosystems as infrastructure
"Living landscapes are a form of infrastructure in the sense that forests, for example, clean our water and our air."
"...It is not enough simply to restore natural systems to their former condition. “There is no ‘pure nature’ that’s outside of us, untouched up there in the foothills somewhere...We’ve ‘made’ the world what it is already, so now we need to take a very, very strong hand in the remaking. … A big part of climate adaptation may simply be unbuilding what we’ve already built.”
"A big part of climate adaptation may simply be unbuilding what we’ve already built. Rather than thinking of design as something merely additive or “beautifying,” we need to think about undoing our environmental mistakes, like damming rivers, bulkheading our shorelines, and concretizing streams. We need to start making room for rivers and floods."
"What we are trying to do is integrate many local projects into a larger-scale systemic approach, into a larger-scale resilience plan."

Sometimes inspiration comes from the strangest places
Every week Steve & Ben knocked on doors on their estate & offered to plant fruit trees in folks' gardens.
Their Transition group, Community Roots Permaculture Project in Bolton has a passion for bringing permaculture and growing skills working class communities like theirs.
They used a small transition seed funding grant, made possible by funding from The National Lottery Community Fund to give more than 80 families their own free, healthy, fresh source of local food right in their own backyard.
Read their amazing story in the latest Permaculture Magazine and hear from Steve himself, and more this Wednesday, 7.30pm at our Skillshare on how communities are addressing the cost of living crisis.

David Holmgren on RetroSuburbia: The Downshifter's Guide to a Resilient Future
"...what’s become more obvious is, in recent times we are heading into the multiple crises of climate change and resource depletion, geopolitical instability, pandemics, all of these things WITH what we’ve got now. We’re not going to wipe the slate clean & design new, gleaming, sustainable settlements because we actually don’t have time.
We’re going to be adapting in situ. And it turns out that suburban landscapes are remarkably good places for Australians [or whomever] to adapt in situ. Apart from knowing something about where you are & just the skills of gardening in a climate & soil that you’re familiar with rather than somewhere else, the fact that householders have an enormous amount of autonomy to get their act together & start doing things before the whole of society agrees that we need to live in a different way." https://drronehrlich.com/david-holmgren-retrosuburbia-the-downshifters-guide-to-a-resilient-future/

The Palestinian children, en-caged & bombed mercilessly in their isolated, cut-off concentration camp in Gaza, experience a type of trauma unimaginable to those of us not directly impacted by Israel's racist, genocidal attacks. The psychosocial needs are massive. Gaza's mental health teams respond as best they can under the current appalling conditions.

We don't know if our #GlutPlug proposal is of interest here. Its for Fediverse #resilience so as fediverse scales instances don't have to shutdown due to overwhelming demands for content.
When a person boosts likes or replies to content they've downloaded they will also host it themselves for as long as it is in demand, over one of the three #I2P addresses provisioned for such. Server tells subsequent viewers to fetch content from these #I2Peers.
I had grown this small northern #RedOak from an acorn in a pot. It is typical for our much too warm #autumn in #Alsace, finally with rain. Most #trees in the #forest are still green. After the terrible #drought and #heatwaves, the trees enjoy the water now. One month too late, the first leaves begin colouring. Red oaks are planted beside more native ones as an experiment for #climateCrisis #resilience. They need less water. #autumnLeaves #ClimateDiary
I recently tried to sign up for a ride-share service.
This is my story.
"#Heatwaves are a complex #hazard and thus an integrated, collaborative management approach, consisting of risk assessment, care for vulnerable people, #UrbanPlanning, landscape management, emergency and recovery planning, community #awareness and #resilience and organisation and business resilience, is necessary."
In the monochromatic dance of urbanity, the shuttered storefront stands resilient. The awning above, striped and weary, mansplains tales of countless rains it has shielded beneath its humble fabric. 🌧️
I just published my first update post to my #LivingLiteratureReview #ExistentialCrunch: https://existentialcrunch.substack.com/p/november-2023-updates
The idea of a living literature review is to update it, when new papers come out or I learn something new about the topic. I started this project six months ago and by now I had enough new insights to gather them in an update post.
tomorrowwww (Thursday Oct 26) at 13:30 ET / 17:30 GMT you can catch me live on the All Day DevOps virtual stage and ask me all your Qs about #resilience + chaos + secure by design — really I just love questions

Llama poop helps restore ecosystems teetering on disintegration as glaciers retreat.
'“[Looking through feces] doesn’t sound like fun, but when you see vegetation sprouting out of that, and you recognize that the whole ecosystem goes back to this latrine,” [Geography professor Tim] Beach said. “Because the llamas go to graze there too … you see that these are little islands of fertility, that then lead to the stabilization of this ecosystem.”
...The work was done in collaboration with Llama 2000 Asociación, an organization of local Peruvian farmers whose land and communities had been negatively impacted by the receding glaciers."
""Shelterbelts are really important in that part of the province … that has to do with the wind and the amount of precipitation that we get."
At the end of October, Project Forest will hold a ceremony in Siksika and plant 180 seedlings. By spring of next year, 180,000 seedlings will be planted.
Over the next five years, Toffan says one million trees will be planted in Siksika."
Much of the research so far has focused on catastrophe. But
"The new research suggests that #resilience is an ability that societies can gain and lose over time. Researchers found that a stable society can withstand even a dramatic #climate shock, whereas a small shock can lead to chaos in a vulnerable one."
Since #inequality makes a society more vulnerable to climate shocks, it makes sense to build #ClimateJustice into your action plan.
it's meant as a handy reference to validate that your org's security efforts are nurturing resilience rather than fomenting theater (and I don't mean writing your design docs in iambic pentameter, that's fine)
imo security theater is one of the core pillars holding up the status quo of security-as-gatekeeper... so let's do resilience instead <3

A #RuralNewDeal for the 21st Century
#Progressive #Democrats of #America (PDA) in partnership with the Rural Urban Bridge Initiative (#RUBI) introduce the #Rural #NewDeal, a ten pillar #policy platform designed to reverse decades of #economic decline, and cultivate long-term rural and #smalltown prosperity and #resilience through federal investment in bottom-up solutions.
I was asked today: what excites you the most in #cybersecurity rn?
As I answered (podcast will come out in a few weeks), very very little within the cybersecurity industry itself excites me these days.
But a *ton* of stuff outside it excites the everliving fuck out of me — in the realms of observability, modularity, isolation, simulating distsys, visualizing data flows and interactions, and other things that help keep systems adaptive in the face of failure (ie helps sustain #resilience).
