The Cambridge Resilience Web is a visual directory of environmental and social justice groups in and around Cambridge, with over 600 groups and organisations listed. There are three webs: the Cambridge city web, the University of Cambridge web and the Anglia Ruskin University web.
Cambridge is a special place, particularly when it comes to the diversity of local groups working on sustainability, resilience, and environmental issues. But it can sometimes be difficult to navigate these groups or even to find out that they exist - which is where these "webs of connections" can be really helpful. They show the variety of groups that exist in the city and as part of the university.
We hope the webs will be a useful navigation tool for people looking for a group working on a particular issue. The webs also help us to feel part of a movement, that is more powerful than the sum of the parts.
We hope you find the webs helpful, and we welcome your feedback. We are aware the webs are probably not perfect, and that things are changing all the time. We'll do our best to keep them up-to-date, and if you have ideas to take them further, or you'd like to get involved in this project, get in touch.
This is a fortnightly seminar series to examine one aspect of the Resilience Web in detail and to think about how we can live well within planetary boundaries. Together we can plan and build a thriving future for Cambridge.
