Integral Nile Journeys: Building up a Pan African Community of Communities along the River Nile
10 December 2019: TRANS4M joins Steering Committee Meeting of Nile Journeys in Egypt’s Aswan.
The Nile Journeys’ mission is to nurture a culture of peace that regeneratively impacts the land, the water body and the quality of life of people living in the Nile Basin. With communities participating from across Africa, this upcoming social initiative has the transformative potential to positively influence social, cultural, ecological and economic renewal across the continent.
Upon invitation of its steering committee members – in particular Mohamed El Mongy from Egypt and Luea Ritter from Switzerland/Belgium, who are also both enrolled in TRANS4M’s PhD, respective PHD (Process for Holistic Development) Program – TRANS4M’s co-founder Alexander Schieffer joined the team for one and a half days. The focus of this workshop was to explore and define an underlying integral research-to-innovation process, that would best suit the Nile Journeys to build up a relevant knowledge and practice base – to be shared among the participating communities.
Based on a network of trusted relationships, and informed by a rich collection of community stories and cultural narratives, Nile Journeys aspires to develop a new knowledge and practice base, that can ultimately be disseminated across Nile communities via transformative educational processes – with the overall view to building up a regenerative culture of peace and integral wellbeing in the Nile Basin.
The resonance between the Nile Journeys’ inclusive vision and TRANS4M’s Integral Development processes is huge, and we expect further co-creation in the future – in and for Africa!
