Dear Trans4mers, Friends and Colleagues of Trans4m !
2018 started for Trans4m with a rich and, as you will see, highly “transcultural” intensive first quarter.
As we are spreading the Trans4m wings further, our local centers are playing an ever more important catalytic role. Here are three African examples: Firstly, OFIRDI Ofure (Pax) Integral Research and Development Initiative, under the leadership of Trans4m Senior Fellow Father Anselm Adodo, is starting this May, together with Ibadan University (Nigeria) and Trans4m, a new Masters Program for Transformation Management in Africa. Secondly, members of the CISER Center for Integral Social and Economic Research and OFIRDI, both in Nigeria, are in the process of setting up a CARE 4 Africa Book Series, to be launched in 2018. And thirdly, Zimbabwe’s Pundutso Center for Integral Development is currently conceptualising a second volume following the original Integral Green Zimbabwe book, showcasing the most recent research-to-innovation developments in our Zimbabwean community. These are just three examples, illustrating how we grow as a community, locally and globally, with the local in the lead.
In our newsletter, we share the highlights of the quarter. The newsletter is a tool for you to stay abreast of the developments in our Trans4m community. Much more, it is an invitation to you, dear friend and supporter, to engage with us – on our shared journey to originate holistic solutions for today’s most burning issues, and to “shift the paradigm” towards an integral way of living, learning, and innovating together.
Please visit our website for regular updates on Trans4m’s “integral innovations”. Let us know your comments and thoughts and please feel free to share this newsletter with your friends and colleagues.
With kindest wishes and TRANS4Mative greetings!
On behalf of the Trans4m Community
