    14. 14. An “ecology of EE” explains how EE relates to other parts of the social-ecological system.
    15. 15. An “ecology of EE” helps us:
    16. 16. to theorize the role of EE in fostering desirable resilience.
    17. 17. eventually to better manage social-ecological systems for resilience.</li></li></ul><li>Take-Home Message<br /><ul><li>Resilience: capacity of system to respond to and to grow from disturbance.
    18. 18. Civic ecology practices can help confer resilience.
    19. 19. EE can be situated in and enhance civic ecology practices.
    20. 20. Thus, EE may help confer resilience.</li>
