In this paper we share our resilience making approach for a first year design program in which we work intentionally with scale – through the subject matters of resilience, and through our learning design. We respond to the provocation of matters of scale in design to progress our design research in two ways. The first contributes to discussion of design education's remit from within ecological and existential crises, relative to expanding (design) knowledge. We then give focus to the co-citizen design lab that students conduct to illustrate how the inter-scalar relations we explore manifest through students' design action. Here we draw on the 2019 and 2020 co-citizen design labs and evolve its learning design for a third iteration of resilience making in 2021. We conclude by suggesting resilience making as a purposeful way of practising hope and small, ecologically and socially viable transformations.
