The ability to access accurate, accessible, and relevant information is one of the barriers for many communities regarding adaptation and becoming resilient. On the left we show a group of individuals who are able to enter a public library, access information, and share it with their community members. On the right we show stacks of books that are inaccessible to the public—with no one inside accessing information. On the right, valuable knowledge is locked and accessible only to a small population.
