WASHINGTON, DC – Today the Atlantic Council launched Resilient World, a new podcast that features thought leaders sharing their views on resilience and how it can help with disruptions and challenges, from global health security to climate change, countering violent extremism, and many more.
Hosted by Christine Wormuth, director of the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Center for Resilience, Season One of Resilient World takes listeners behind the scenes as guests Lisa Monaco, Thad Allen, Amy Pope, Peter Neffenger, and Ray Mabus describe how they managed complex and challenging situations like the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombings, and the 2014 Ebola crisis.
The first two episodes of Resilient World – available now – feature Lisa Monaco, former homeland security and counterterrorism advisor to President Barack Obama, and Thad Allen, former commandant of the United States Coast Guard, and national incident commander for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
“The Atlantic Council is always seeking innovative ways to highlight how we can navigate some of the biggest challenges we face today,” said Atlantic Council President and CEO Fred Kempe. “Podcasts are an exciting medium to bring crucial policy debates to listeners in their homes, cars, and daily lives. Through Resilient World, the Adrienne Arsht Center for Resilience seeks to raise awareness of what resilience means and how it can help people manage change.”
In a period of tremendous upheaval, the Adrienne Arsht Center for Resilience works to build resilience – the ability to prepare for, absorb, and recover from potential challenges – into our societies and our systems. The Center develops pragmatic recommendations to put ideas into practice, helping governments, cities, businesses, and other leaders to identify and address challenges before they become crises.
