The Response from Shareable.net, is a documentary film, book, and podcast series exploring how communities are building collective resilience in the wake of disasters.
Climate-fueled disasters are radically transforming the world we live in; with the increasing amount of deaths, displacements, and economic damages acting as a wake-up call for many.
The severe storms, wildfires, inland floods, crop freezes, droughts, and tropical cyclones have touched nearly everyone around the world.
And yet, news coverage routinely underplays the central drama of these disasters. More often than not, it's the people living in the affected communities that, despite all the obstacles, rise to the occasion to save lives, reduce suffering, and form a community of care.
And the re-imagining of what’s possible doesn’t stop after the initial recovery is over; instead, it continues as communities regenerate; often increasing their equity, resilience, and capacity for joy.
