I would like to share my experience in applying SALT to a project with Civil Society Organisations in Tarragona, Catalonia.
A gathering was organized on 20th January, which was facilitated using SALT to get to know better "Who are we".

Great to see you here! Lots of what you believe in is part of the dream and the approach of the Constellation, as I understand it: the importance of building connections on the shared humanity aspect, looking for the common ground of 'what makes us human?'.

In other words, it can be a matter of life and death to bring people together and facilitate connections from human to human. Sharing personal stories instead of preaching ideological views.
The aspect of story telling is well developed within the Constellation. And it is a tool for building connections between people.
I love your dream Noemi. Would you have any example where you have facilitated very diverse groups towards collective action? Thanks. Warm greetings from Delhi!
