Community + SALT + Me = All equal human valuable and lovable

When I decided to join the Constellation Team, SALT principles were the key for my passionate attraction. I even thought that it was the only thing that was making this team functioning. One might question why that was so evident comparatively to the other set of marvelous activities that the ACP team develops. And that is right, I also question the same. I never understand why, I only know that it is so impressing to the stage that once you start you get so involved and don’t even think of… Continue

Constellations first Lustrum : a purification ?

Today, 7 December 2009, is a grey and rainy day in my part of the world. And the day risks to go by without further mentioning. But it is not that we have no reason to celebrate. Exactly 5 years ago on a day that was exactly as grey as today, eleven people came together in a dark meeting room just outside Geneva. They lightened up that day with a vision of a Constellation of connected stars supporting each other in becoming AIDS Competent. They made that vision concrete with the foundation of… Continue

The danger of a single story

I came across this story today. I found it fascinating to listen to. For me it emphasises the importance of us collecting more than one experience for each Principle for Action that we are collecting as Knowledge Assets about the response to HIV and AIDS. We are quick to make assumptions from a single experience. It is better if we get other perspectives from different settings… Continue
