Sense making in polarising times: What is deep diversity in healthy and just transitioning?
A pan-european webinar for change makers, transitioners, eco-villagers and lovers of life.
After more than a year of a global pandemic, we are experiencing health issues that go beyond the direct impact of the covid-19 virus. Deep injustices are combining with newly inflicted collective trauma and affecting the interpersonal relationships in our societies, communities, movements and organizations where symptoms of increasing polarization, conflicts and distrust, are making healthy and just transitioning more difficult.
Our lives have increasingly moved to social media platforms, where business models enhance polarization and reduce or eliminate our ability to make collective sense of our world. There is a need to come together and address topics of concern with conversations that aim to generate trust, understanding and collective action for the greater good.
How do we bridge the gaps? How do we create fertile soil for our diverse individual and collective needs to be met while building a healthy and just transition?
The Transition-movement is one of many social movements that sees the need of other stories to be told about who we are and seeks to transition the societal and cultural systems that are degenerative to regenerative ones. This is a huge task with many challenges, where one is that of creating space for diversity.
With this webinar we are inviting you to join us to give room to the sometimes sensitive matters, to explore and help each other in finding new pathways regarding inclusion and diversity. Let's look more into what deep diversity is and how it is a fundamental part of a healthy and just transitioning.
