Connecting local responses around the world
Here is The Constellation 2015 report!
The theme of the report is : “In our differences we grow; in our sameness we connect”
The conversation around differences creates a third possibility beyond the differences... so that both grow...
“Communities take ownership and we accompany them.”
The report also presents the SALT approach activities of Constellation teams and of other organisations.
“In our differences we grow; in our sameness we connect” is not just a theme but an essential call to action for a peaceful world where people lead meaningful and joyful lives.
