Intergenerational Asset Mapping in our Rural Community


ABCD and Youth

OH. MY GOD, LINDA!!! My spider-blending-senses were tingling from your previous reply but this reply has absolutely confirmed you are a kindred spirit! Haha!

How absolutely wonderful! I see you!

I had lunch with Vickie and Al, at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, in Australia last year and found the same feeling of kindred spirit - Al gifted me with a copy of his new book "Impact" and we have been in contact since - in fact, I'm talking with him next week about my visit next month to see if we might be able to connect while I'm there!

I haven't been to Costa Rica but, I have had many skype/zoom calls with Mohit - I was one of the first students to do the Diploma and so feedback from that first group was really important to them!

Your job, is my job! *humble bow*

Please feel free to re-post anything of mine - I think we're best mates now, so it's allowed!

I love how you word my experience as "list of identities" - that is so perfect! I've never liked all the "labels" but find that different people relate to different ones so, which do I cull? Maybe after I add Inclusive Leader and link to your page, I'll just start collecting more identities and make it a game! 

What a wonderful post to wake up to this morning! I look forward to staying in touch!

I'm on the road and in planes today! Please feel free to connect with me on Facebook or email or Twitter or whatever you use for contact!

Intergenerational Asset Mapping in our Rural Community


ABCD and Youth

Hi Linda,

Thanks for those links - I love what you are all doing/achieving/being! Wow!

Our org is emerging alongside the Next Stage Organisation principles of participatory leadership - do you know Laloux's Reinventing Organisations work? One of our Collective members is currently in Greece at a Next Stage conference...

I think we would have a lot of synergies to discuss!

Personally, my passion is in the borders and boundaries of good strengths-based practice... if you're game and have time to read a LONG blog, you can find out more about that here: http://jeder.com.au/through-the-looking-glass/

I look forward to staying connected!

Regards,

Dee...

p.s. I assume you know Al Etmanski?

Hi again, Linda,

That sounds great - it would be cool to see what was produced!

Are there weblinks to any of the ABCD work you mentioned in BC? I'll be at the Coady Institute next month (not that it's near you) but it would be good to get more info about what else is happening around Canada!

Regards,

Dee...

Wow! It would be great if you could share the map, Linda!

It sounds like an incredible process and I'm sure it was full of deep conversations, too!

Frameworks for capturing impacts of ABCD


Tips, Tools, Strategies, and Technology

Hi Ian,

I undertook some complementary work in Indonesia, alongside Alison from Coady, with the Islamic universities over a couple of years... I have Alison's M&E final report that I'm sure she wouldn't mind sharing (she's now retired), if you would like a copy?

Also, I have added your conversation to the ABCD in Action Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/429625007423984/

Parks and Rec practitioner loves ABCD


ABCD - Getting Started/Challenges

That's awesome, Jana! Sorry I didn't think of you earlier - you would be a great point of contact for Marisa!

I've emailed her some community conversation docs - maybe you can look at a collaboration? That would be wild!

ABCD - Getting Started/Challenges

Hi Marisa,

Your conversation has also been added to the ABCD in Action Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/429625007423984/

Great topic! I'm part of a team who is about to undertake some foundational, culture change work in a large government department in Australia - parks and rec will certainly be part of it eventually! 

I've got a whole lot of example one-day flow/agendas that I would be happy to share with you to start considering what a day like you suggest might look like?

If you're interested, send me an email and I'll flick some examples back to you: dee@jeder.com.au 

Regards,

Dee...

Looking for ABCD practitioners who are also familiar with theater of the oppressed and psychodrama


ABCD and Art

Hi Andres,

What a fantastic enterprise!

There was a group in Australia (where I live) called Red Thread Stories who were doing some awesome community work years ago although, I don't think they were particularly ABCD focused... I can't think of anyone else at the moment but, I have added your message to the ABCD In Action Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/429625007423984/

Hope you find someone and please, let us know how it all unfolds!

Exciting!

Regards,

Dee...
