Columbia Resilience is part of the worldwide Transition Network. We are a 501c3 non-profit group working in the greater Columbia, SC area. Our mission is to build resilience in all sectors of our community so that we can withstand severe energy, climate, and economic shocks while creating a better quality of life in the process. Our group has a listserv membership of over 166 families. We hold monthly potluck meetings and workshops, open to the public, at the Green Quad Learning Center on the University of South Carolina campus. Our meeting topics and workshops fall under three areas: powering down, reskilling, and reconnecting.
