The focus of this chapter is wider than that of other chapters in this book because its focus is the environmental ‘web’ of the Dynamic Interactive Model of Resilience (ahmed Shafi et al., 2020). The environment is characterised as a multi-dimensional, complex adaptive system. Guattari’s notion of different ecological registers (environment, social relations and human subjectivity) is introduced with the addition of technology as proposed by Pringle (The ecosystem is an apparatus: From machinic ecology to the politics of resilience. In: Pringle T, Koch G, Stiegler B (Eds) Machine. Meson Press, Lüneburg, 2019). This leads to a sociomaterial stance being taken in understanding how resilience is enhanced at society level. Three examples of research into social resilience building illustrate, among other things, the importance of boundary-crossing—a process of pro-actively linking different actors or social sectors. Consideration is given to the question of measurement and assessment of social resilience before concluding that learning is a central feature of any resilient building process and that this in turn is enhanced by openness and the sharing of power.
