The authors of this paper indicate a significant way that theory and practice, but only slightly, crossed from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to the resilience concept. Although both concepts had a common intention, wellbeing of the society, ways to achieve these objectives were set on a very different fundamentals and relationships. The concept of sustainable development and the Millennium Development Goals, which unfortunately have not fully come to life in practice, continued the concept of resilience and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Three pillars, as the basis of the concept of sustainable development, were the basis for the creation of similar but more extensive pillars of the concept of resilience. Defined in 2016, SDGs accompany efforts to achieve long-term sustainable society, on a global level, that will be elastic to all kinds of changes and unexpected shocks of any kind. Through the division of SDGs on 17 global goals and 169 sub-goals, experts in the field of economy, ecology, society and institutions set up and implement a new system that will be able to adapt and to be resilient and elastic to changes that characterise the global reality.
