The prominence of the term resilience reflects the zeitgeist of a time that is uncertain and crisis-ridden. Only if we are resilient, can we withstand a crisis, endure and recover from it. However, a weakness of this perspective on resilience is that any disruption can appear like a force of nature to which we are exposed and to which we can only react and adapt. How then can we understand resilience in the context of the climate crisis and digitization? Can we have a proactive approach to resilience, whilst taking into account the enabling and disabling forces at play in digital society?
