Arizona Institute for Resilience

Solutions for Environment and Society

Changing the world starts at home. Join us as we chart the course towards a more vibrant, sustainable planet.

We turn science into actionable, community-oriented solutions. Our focus is resilience, the practice of designing environmental and social systems to anticipate and integrate with global change.

Grounded in the sciences, we bring together researchers, educators, problem-solvers, and innovators from diverse disciplines – engineering, humanities, economics, public policy, law, the arts, and beyond – to develop innovative and practical solutions to the environmental and resilience challenges we face today.
