Francois Bousquet, one of the organisers for the Resilience 2014 conference in Montpellier, France, explains some of the thought behind the format of the conference.
To meet with practitioners in their context and build up the group and create an atmosphere the first day of the conference consisted of off-site sessions where participants got to visit different sites in the area around Montpellier.
Art is traditionally an important part of the Resilience conferences. This time art elements included a circus, paintings, photography and dance. Understanding of social-ecological systems can be stimulated by expressions of art.
The objective behind the conference was to bring together the two worlds of resilience of social-ecological systems and resilience for development.
