Creating the big shift


About Resilience Realized

All facets of society urgently need to build asset and infrastructure resilience to climate change and other uncertainties, such as pandemic, cyberterrorism, system failure or other emerging areas of vulnerability.

Infrastructure resilience is the ability to withstand, adapt to changing conditions and recover from shocks and stresses, to be able to continue to provide essential services for local communities.

The Resilience Realized Awards will give recognition to those projects around the world that are at the cutting edge of resilience. They will showcase organizations, teams and governments that are inspiring transformational change to create resilient outcomes against current and future uncertainties.

Resilience Realized will bring together the best examples globally of innovative approaches to creating and realizing resilient infrastructure systems in practice.


We will be inviting entries from 1st November 2021
through to March 2022.

Created by Wood and The Resilience Shift, the Resilience Realized Awards website, and showcase of submitted and shortlisted projects, will be a future resource to inspire, motivate and enable resilience creation across infrastructure systems, sharing best practice examples of new and creative ways to deliver future-ready resilient assets and infrastructure.



Is your organisation at the cutting edge of resilience? Are you inspiring transformational change in what you do and how you do it to better build resilience into your infrastructure projects?


We will be announcing the judging panel in full in Q4 2021. Assessment of submissions, shortlisting and judging will take place with winners to be announced in Q4 2022.


Why should you enter the Awards? Across the Wood and Resilience Shift communities of interest, we see examples of excellence and best practice for resilience, and we want to showcase and celebrate the best of these.
