Abstract

This paper presents research and a discussion on aspects of community resilience informed by literature and the case study of the World Music School (WMS) focusing on the human community resilience impact through (and with) their immediate environments (both social and environmental).

The observation of our close environment and the links between human beings and our current environment suggest an emergent result, one of disconnection (Holt 2015). Despite using digital ecosystems (Vaidhyanathan 2018) services to sustain themselves, individuals are cognitively severed from the remaining link they could have with their close biophysical environment (Kesebir 2017). In addition to this phenomena, the individual can also be isolated among their peers, sharing increasing superficial connections and relationships with fewer deep interconnections. Consequently, such a social system shows signs of acute weakness in its resilience towards shocks and disturbances, with emergent sets of characteristics. Its weakest components being the less connected (Walker and Salt 2006).
