Are you are intrigued by SALT and would you like to experience it?
Is your community making progress towards its dream and are you excited to share your experience?
Would you like to meet colleagues and friends with who apply strength based approach?
IndiaCompetence, with SIAAP as a host, is inviting you to participate in the Constellations Global Knowledge Fair in Chennai, India from 20th to 24th November 2012. During these five days we will learn from the strengths of Indian communities, take stock of our global experience with local responses and set fertile ground for strength-based, collaborative and community driven approaches.
“This will be a life changing experience” says Nicole from Guyana. “ I will definitely be there” affirms Ruben, UNAIDS Guyana. “I think this is the next step for the Constellation” observes David from Sierra Leone.
With their sharing, learning and appreciation participants re-energise and rejuvenate the local communities. “People have visited us and our communities before. I am sure the visitors too have been elsewhere; Usually, there are good experiences and even great experiences, inspirational experiences, which stay with one. This time, the experiences went beyond that; they are transferring and triggering off newer and newer experiences. There is a sense of joy and wonder that does not seem to cease.” Sanghamitra, Samraksha, host of International Knowledge Fair 2010..
Participants will cover their own travel costs and a fee to cover local travel, accommodation, meeting costs, facilitation, lunch and dinner. We are also looking for volunteers for the International Knowledge Fair working group which will look into mobilising resources, facilitation and (logistical) preparation and follow up.
