“Resilience”: the capacity to adapt to stress and change

In Resilience: Survive and Thrive, you are community leaders that share natural resources and are competing to have the most developed community.

But beware! Overdevelopment destroys the environment, which puts everyone at a higher risk from extreme weather events. Cooperate in maintaining the environment but compete in having the most developed community!
