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.

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…
