Yesterday, in the train, on my way from Brussels to Amsterdam,

I met 3 traveller coming from Dubai;

originally they are from Syria;

we had a long conversation;

they talked about their beloved country; about the thousands of people dying or escaping, family members or friends; about their beautiful villages and cities destroyed; about the culture of tolerance and co-existence of religious traditions; about simplicity and aspiration to live a good life;

Knowledge Fairs Should Be Prepared at the Beginning of the Projects

I share this blog on behalf of Jean Baby Fulama, facilitator in DRC:

The Knowledge Fair in the Kalenda Health Zone went well, and we have almost finished our report. The support team of the GCSE project of the Zone will soon send me the contribution of some villages who are applying SALT.

Here is a small thing that I would like to share with you: I say in my report that the Knowledge Fair should, in my opinion, be prepared from the start of a project, at the same time as the…

PETITE ACTION FAISABLE (PAF): L’ÉNONCÉ DÉVOILE L’ESPRIT DU CONCEPT, MAIS, LA COMPRÉHENSION…

Je partage cette histoire au nom de Jean Baby Fulama, facilitateur en RDC:

Une petite histoire (anecdote) qui corrobore le concept PAF, en soutien à la définition élaborée à partir des propositions avancées par les collègues facilitateurs de RDCCompétence :

La PAF est une action concrète et mesurable, significative et pertinente, entreprise pour introduire un changement. Il peut s’agir d’un changement d’habitude.

La PAF est facile à mettre en œuvre avec…

SMALL DOABLE ACTION, OR IN FRENCH PETITE ACTION FAISABLE (PAF): THE STATEMENT UNVEILS THE SPIRIT OF CONCEPT, BUT THE UNDERSTANDING...

I share this story on behalf of Jean Baby Fulama, facilitator in DRC:

A little story which corroborates the concept of PAF in support of the definition developed from proposals by colleagues, facilitators of RDCCompétence:

A PAF is a concrete and measurable action, meaningful and relevant, implemented to introduce a change. It can be a change of habit.

A PAF is easily implemented with the available resources, without outside…

La foire d’échange devrait être préparée dès le début d’un projet

Je partage cette histoire au nom de Jean Baby Fulama, facilitateur en RDC:

La foire d’échanges de la Zone de santé de Kalenda s’est bien déroulé et avons quasiment fini notre rapport. Il nous  reste le complément de quelques villages touchés par le SALT que l’équipe de soutien du projet GCSE (Gestion Communautaire de la Santé de l’Enfant) de la Zone va bientôt m’envoyer.

Un petit partage : je dis dans mon rapport que la foire d’échanges devra à mon avis être…

Le cercle de parole, un outil précieux!

Le cercle de parole est un outil merveilleux. Prenons-en soin comme l’artisan  prend soin de ses précieux outils. 

C’était à St Paul de La Réunion.  Invités par l’IREPS, nous en étions à la quatrième journée d’une semaine d’apprentissage et de partage de l’approche SALT avec des personnes engagées dans la promotion de la santé.  Nous nous étions débarrassés d’emblée de nos titres et chaque jour la pratique du  SALT nous rapprochait. La veille nous avions développé le rêve de La…

"Paper Pull" in SALT

"When you come back....." more a statement than a question was the remark of Nadia to the After Experience Reflection question with Persons on Methadone Therapy. You would gather that they had agree that we come back for more SALT action. (^_^). So when the question was finally asked "do we come again?" there was a resounding yes. Her statement was related to the thought of what other exercises will we do the next time. She continued.."What I like is the "pulling of the paper" that made a…

11 Forum International de l'EHESP à Rennes, 4 février 2015

Les organisateurs m'ont demandé de place la "leçon inaugurale" dans le contexte des attaques terroristes à Paris de janvier. Voici ce que j'ai dit. Je suis persuadé que je n'ai pas convaincu tout le monde, mais la Maire adjointe de Rennes a repris les thèmes de la confiance et du rêve dans ses conclusions...

11th International Forum at the French School of Public Health, February 4, 2015

The School invited me to place the  introductory lecture, in the context of the early January terrorist attacks in Paris. This is what I said. I am pretty sure not everyone was convinced, but the vice mayor of Rennes, came back in closing on the two themes of trust and dream.
