n this blog series I am likening conflict transformation to conflict composting. We have seen that this process of composting is actually taking the dead mater, adding some elements of air and water and finally putting some little critters called microbes into the mix and the result is rich blend that regenerates the soil. I suggested that the dead plant matter we added first might be analogous to the trauma and brokenness that violent conflict leaves in its wake and be seen as an… Continue

Water is our lifeblood. Without it, we will die. More than half of our bodies are composed of water. We drink it. We wash in it. We water plants with it. We feed it to our pets. We use it constantly throughout the day. 70% of our planet is covered in it. It’s everywhere, but it’s also limited. “Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink”… Only about 2% of all water is fresh, with almost 2% of that fresh water trapped away in the ice caps and glaciers.
We currently are… Continue

These areas are needed to produce food, provide pasture and to supply growing cities and industries with water and timber. Yet, experience is showing that poverty increases as more and more forest cover is cleared.
Over the past 50 years, as populations in developing countries… Continue
