Thursday 22 February 2024, 6pm for 6.30pm to 7.30pm, London

Resilience First is delighted to be hosting a joint event with Lord Toby Harris, Chair of the National Preparedness Commission (NPC), on the state of the nation’s resilience, three years on from founding the commission. 

The NPC was created in response to the UK government’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, with a mission to promote better preparedness for a major crisis or incident in the country.  Today, the commission boasts over 50 influentials advisers who together produce a series of thought-provoking reports on ways to build a truly resilient nation.

As our world continues to experience volatile and interconnected crises, with forecasts of further drastic impacts from climate risks as we head towards 2050, Resilience First looks forward to hearing from Lord Harris on what we should be doing today in order to build a more resilient tomorrow.  

The evening will be followed by a networking reception for all our Premium members and will conclude with a private Chatham House roundtable discussion with senior executives from our Changemakers to allow for a more candid conversation.
