Stories about Response (2,017)

Being climate resilient

The ‘climate crisis’ is real my friends! If you feel the micro-climate temperate is hotter than usual, that is happening all over the world. Not only in your neighborhood! Your micro-level experience is supported in a broader sense by the evidence of science. 

Climate resilience is the capacity for a socio-ecological system to: [1] absorb stresses and maintain function…

Thinking of gender

Hi friends, it's been a long time since I do not share with you in this platform, but these days I came to think about how we are looking as SALT practitioners at this issue, gender, that is in everybody's agenda recently. Are we really paying enough attention or, if enough, in the right perspective?

When I came in touch with The Constellation, my main work within the response to HIV was focused on gender inequality, on how women were affected by the virus to a greater extent than…

SALT stimulates response and behaviour change

One of the early projects I facilitated CLCP around 2012. I actively started facilitating in 2013.
Avahaan Project funded by BMGF and for Care India, I facilitated CLCP with a collective of 10 sex worker CBOs called Nari Saksham in Rajahmundry. This was under Anthony Reddy who headed the project. Through CLCP we had to build leadership amongst the sex workers to improve organisation and development of CBOs. 
During one of the SALT visits one of the practices which…

Stewardship: Leaning into collaboration

Hi Everyone, 

I recently posted a blog on how we need to rethink our role as leaders in community, shifting focus on stewardship rather than leadership. 

It might be of interest to those of you interested in the relationship between community driven action and wider systems change.

Alastair McIntosh on Climate Change, Community & 'Spiritual Activism'

Hi all,

I once read that "only a demanding common task builds community". It's hard to think of a task more demanding - or more common - than climate change. One of my favourite writers and thinkers is a Scottish man called Alastair McIntosh, and he has written at length about both of these things: climate change and community. 

I was very excited recently to speak with him for Arukah Network's How To Build Community podcast. I got to ask him about these…

THE VALUE OF SALT APPROACHES

The inherent value of the SALT approach to Human Development initiatives lies in that it is a cue to the intended beneficiary that the practitioner respects them. Only when there is a strong sense of collegiality can constructive engagement take place.Even then , the flexibility that SALT brings allows for the possibility of the practitioner to watch his original ideas come to fruition without actually voicing them!SALT is thus a wake-up call for the expert to let go- and the underdog to…

I recently spoke with the award-winning New York-based storyteller Laura Simms for Arukah Network's 'How To Build Community' podcast. You might enjoy it:…

“Yes, that’s your opinion; but what would be an example?” - deepening SALT by story telling

What I appreciate so much about SALT, is that it fosters deep connections between people. When we suspend judgment and take time to listen deeply, we arrive at a shared understanding. We meet in a field described by Rumi: “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there."

As facilitators, how do we allow such a field to emerge? How do we facilitate conversations so that this authentic, vulnerable human connection can build?…

Citizens at the Centre: A journey with my Tamarack Institute colleagues

Last month I joined Tamarack's Liz Weaver and Sylvia Cheuy on a cross-country tour to deliver Citizens at the Centre - a travelling workshop on how to engage ordinary citizens in the community change process. 

It was hectic. Five workshops, in five cities, over eight days - Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. A weekend glamping in the Rockies in between, followed by two nights at Tofino before returning to Melbourne Australia.
