Resilience is a psychological term that means resilience and resilience against adversity, and is a concept born from surveys and research on the mentality of Jewish survivors of the Holocaust during World War II.
Since the 1970s, various experiments and research have revealed individual differences in resilience. For example, people with low resilience tend to be overwhelmed with joy and despair about things, while people with high resilience tend to have less fluctuations in their emotions. Differences in thinking habits such as "I still have three days".
"Emotional control", "self-esteem", "self-efficacy", "optimism", etc. have been discussed as keywords for enhancing resilience. There are no studies targeting societal-level groups.
This is why we advocate the concept of social resilience. From the perspective of thinking about resilience as a problem at the national level, or even as an issue for all of humanity, I wondered if there should be an area to study resilience on a collective scale, from organizations such as schools and companies to local governments such as municipalities.
In relation to this, there is already a breakout called SDGs, but I think it is necessary to verify social resilience in the future in a way that accompanies this concept.
When thinking about a sustainable society, the most important perspective is the construction of a social system that is resilient (flexibly overcome) against adversity such as the corona disaster. There is also the perspective of how to develop defense and recovery systems against all kinds of natural disasters, from torrential rains to volcanic eruptions to earthquakes.
In any case, the basic concept of social resilience should play a major role. Just as it is important for individual athletes to have mental, technical, and physical strength, it is also important for society to have mental, technical, and physical strength in place. We should start preparing for that now. It's never too late for anything.
A famous YouTuber has repeatedly said, "Today is the youngest day in my life."
We believe that anticipating the future of light and imagining a "successful future" is the "first step" of social resilience, rather than fearing failure and imagining a "failure-free future."
This may be something like a destiny imposed on Japanese people. One of the world's most earthquake-prone countries, one of the world's most tsunami-affected countries, the country with about 10% of the world's active volcanoes, the only country in history to have suffered atomic bombings, the geopolitically gigantic democratic nation as well as the gigantic socialist nation. It is a country located in the middle of the world, but at the same time, it has achieved a super-explosive economic recovery after the war, a world-class maritime nation, a country that boasts a prominent forest rate among developed countries, and craftsmanship (precision in millimeters). There is only one country on earth that satisfies all of these factors: a country with a sense of intelligence, a country in the top ten of the Nobel Prize world rankings.
Social resilience...is there any other country other than Japan that is suitable for this research? What we need to do now is not only to increase the resilience of individuals, but ultimately to increase the resilience of society.
If the result of the "Earth Consciousness Project" is correct, something wonderful may happen when the Japanese people have positive thoughts at the same time.
