THE CENTRE OF RESILIENCE
Bihar, India faces severe issues of economic instability, social marginalisation, unsustainable urbanisation, the disappearance of Indigenous cultures and ecological diversity, and increasingly extreme climactic conditions due to climate change. However, Bihar still has a chance to shift to models of sustainable development and regenerative practices.
A the Centre of Resilience we work to address these intersecting issues on a regional scale by hiring and training low-income workers to earn a living in a way that regenerates the land, challenges social barriers and demonstrates the power of sustainable, accessible solutions.
Focusing in hybrid waste-upcycling and natural design and construction, we incubate social entrepreneurs, drawing on global as well as local, Indigenous skills, knowledge and practices.
Is to provide pathways towards resilient livelihood, sustainable living and inclusive wellbeing, and thus a regenerative future for the peoples, cultures and ecology of Bihar.
Is for Bihar to be a global model for resilient living and social, ecological regeneration.
