Communities (like individuals) that have witnessed conflict and crises teach us lessons of resilience and sustainability, and can show new ways of relating personally and as groups and organizations. They challenge us at our personal edges and within our cultural identities, and we can learn a great deal from their naturally evolving conflict-resolution practices. Many governments and NGOs have begun to look at multi-stakeholder engagement as the most sustainable support for communities in crisis. Paradigms like Process Work, which can support these processes on the leadership level as well as the grassroots level, have much to contribute in that area. Ellen and Max Schupbach from the Deep Democracy Institute will start the presentation by sharing their learning from working with communities in crises in Ukraine, the USA, and Kenya, followed by an introduction by Irish colleagues Ger, Grace and Eileen on the topic of the evening’s public Open Forum on Youth, Suicide and Communities.
