Mark it in your calendar, here the invitation:
The Conflict Transformation Summit is an online journey inviting us to reimagine the ways we understand and respond to conflict. It aims to be a resource for us to:
- Observe the mindsets and world-views that keep us trapped in patterns of response to tensions and conflicts that lead to results no one wants.
- Get in touch with narratives from a diversity of traditions and cutting-edge insights from the intersection of different science fields that offer other ways of looking at and responding to conflicts.
- Share a myriad of bodies of practice that can support us in manifesting more healthy and regenerative ways to deal with tensions and conflicts, as we relate with ourselves, with each other and with the world at large.
This journey is an opportunity for deeper inquiry into what it means to be human in a time of great uncertainty and major shifts. How can we face tensions and conflicts from a place of curiosity, compassion and courage, opening up a field of possibilities for more healthy and regenerative outcomes to emerge? To address these challenges, people from around the world are invited to hold space with friends, colleagues, partners, family, and neighbours, and to engage in conversations about this recurrent phenomena in life, a “beast” with many faces: CONFLICT. The summit is an opportunity to let go of maps that no longer match the ground we stand, to connect with different perspectives, and to discover new bodies of practice.
This journey is hosted by the Transition Network, The Emergence Network, Starter Culture and the Conversation Collaborative, with the collaboration and support from a wide variety of partners.
Join us from 15th June to 15th July 2020, as we host this five stage journey, guided by a diversity of leading-edge thinkers, rebels, tricksters, wisdom holders, healers, activists, parents, facilitators… human beings from all around the world.
