Founder at Thrivespring


Charlotte Cecil is the co-founder of Thrivespring, an online platform for community resilience and disaster risk management. Thrivespring helps people connect locally and create impactful, ambitious grassroots initiatives to mitigate the effects of disasters and build more robust, adaptive, and prepared communities.

Charlotte studied emergency management at George Brown College in Toronto, Canada. She has been a volunteer responder with various response and recovery groups, and worked for many years as a security consultant in the UK. Following a life-threatening incident in her early 20s, she became interested in emergency preparedness and security, which evolved into a passion for community resilience. She strongly believes that communities which engage in inclusive resilience-building help create safer, healthier and more cohesive societies.
