Initiatives of Change recently conducted “Australians Sharing a New Story – towards community trustbuilding” and will deliver a follow-up dialogue on community trustbuilding at Mt Gravatt on 27 March 2020.
I’m writing from Asia Plateau, the Initiatives of Change centre in India. We have just completed an international dialogue on “Towards a Humane World” with about 140 from 37 countries. We explored the connection of inner change to becoming more effective changemakers around four areas of democracy, sustainability, inclusivity and trust.
While these issues are globally critical, they are also national, local and personal. This is the link to the report of the last Initiatives of Change event in Brisbane “Australians Sharing a New Story – towards community trustbuilding”
The first 2020 event is on 27 March at 7 pm at the Garden City Library, Mt Gravatt, flyer below. We will hear from JOHN DANALIS, author of Riding the Black Cockatoo, the inspiring story of his restitution / reconciliation journey, and UKA PINTO, community leader from Timor-Leste, a Creators of Peace facilitator, masters student in Community Development, Melbourne. They will both inspire us with their stories, followed by Q&A … and other contributions … facilitated by Amiel Nubaha, President of Rwandan Association of Queensland, Griffith Law graduate last year as well as on the alumni of IofC’s Caux Scholars Program (Switzerland).
