    Resilience: COVID-19. Pandemic life. Racial tension. Political unrest. Climate change.  

    Priscilla Du Preez on Unsplash

    We live in a world where change is a constant, and the degree to which we are experiencing change in our everyday lives is speeding up. The last year is a great example.

    When the WHO declared COVID19 a global pandemic, we were forced to redesign how we work, study, socialize, and even how we consume goods. Despite the commercialization of several vaccines, new variants of the SARS COV-2 virus threaten a third wave of the pandemic in Canada. A third wave, and predictions by our scientific community beg the question, Is pandemic life here to stay? If it is, does that mean we will continue to live with the anxiety and depression exacerbated by a lack of social connections and interactions?

    In response, we often hear for calls to be resilient, as if a panacea to all that ails us. What is resiliency? How does one become resilient? How does a resilient brain differ from other brains? How does resiliency translate for a healthy personal and or professional life? What does resiliency mean in a policy context, or for building infrastructure?

    The 2021 Virtual SWCC Conference will explore these questions and more. Join us!
