We build community resilience by nurturing diversity and building relationships across division and difference.
A strategic area of focuses on addressing the refugee crisis and subsequent migration issues within the UK. Our People of the Earth programme brings together Londoners and refugees to encounter each other first and foremost as human beings and share their stories.
A second area of our work responds to the concerning social divisions illuminated in in the wake of the Brexit referendum. This includes differences relating to class and economic status, as well as immigration and racial tensions.
We also facilitate in-depth and direct conflict transformation work with divided diaspora groups in London. Currently, we are working with Columbian, Somali, Sri Lankan and Zimbabwean communities.
People of the Earth is a project about living from our deepest values, building empathy and fostering friendships between Londoners and refugees seeking to make their home in the UK.
Reconciliation as a concept and practice is one of the least understood aspects of sustainable peacebuilding and conflict transformation. In collaboration with the University of Winchester, our MA in Reconciliation brings together the academic rigor of postgraduate study in higher education and the practical knowledge and skills required to work at the cutting edge of reconciliation.
The Community Transformation programme is run in partnership with Search for Common Ground UK and supports leaders from a number of divided diaspora groups to name, understand and transform community conflicts into new relationships and hope for a different future.
