HOW TO BE SAFE & RESILIENT
In order to have the greatest success in flattening the curve and delaying cases of COVID-19, the skills that each of these educational modules seeks to develop must be practiced by as many of us as possible. As an individual, by sharing these modules with your friends and family through social media, email, or phone. We all have a role in helping to elevate awareness of these vital practices to make us safe.We also need to improve our capacity to help vulnerable populations who will be most dramatically impacted by the disruptions associated with the drastic measures that governments are taking to try and slow the spread of the virus.

Based at Northeastern University in Boston, MA, the Global Resilience Institute’s (GRI) research and educational mission is to develop and deploy practical and innovative tools, applications, and skills that drive social and technical changes, which strengthen the capacity of individuals, communities, systems, and networks to adapt to an increasingly turbulent world. Launched in 2017, GRI is the world’s first university-wide institute to respond to the resilience imperative. Today, GRI undertakes multi-disciplinary resilience research and education efforts that draw on the latest findings from network science, health sciences, coastal and urban sustainability, engineering, cybersecurity and privacy, social and behavioral sciences, public policy, urban affairs, business, law, game design, architecture, and geospatial analysis. GRI works in close partnership with industry, government, communities, and non-governmental organizations, as well as engages in external outreach to inform, empower, and scale bottom-up efforts that contribute to individual and collective resilience.
