    Amsterdam is putting the Doughnut of Sustainability we read about this week into action in response to coronavirus! https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/08/amsterdam-doughnut-model-mend-post-coronavirus-economy?fbclid=IwAR2dR_8wsaPNFXjiOA17yBVTW_i9Ol4zAztnk1O3TEgGtQ1DR9ASaziOTlI

    I’m finding this week’s topic, Justice for the Whole Community, to be a difficult one for me personally.. It’s easy to see things that feel unjust in the world, but hard to know how to respond. It’s much easier to take responsibility for personal actions. However, the current moment feels like an opportunity for a great reset to a more just future. What could/should we be doing with this in mind? It would be such a tragedy for the world to return to it’s former status quo...

    Recommend "Best of Enemies" played by C.P Ellis and Ann Atwater that dramatizes the reconciliation of racial tensions in a small town when a black school has a fire and segregation needs to revisited

    Since I'm already paying attention to the news A LOT, I decided viewing it through a peace, justice, and sustainability lens would be helpful in keeping me grounded!

    I am reading an NPQ article that pleads to apply a"racial justice lens" to the urgency of needs!

  • Using a conflict resolution lens has been really eye opening for me. I have seen all these things before, but notice the differently through this lens. What's also helpful in using this lens is seeing myself through it and where I can make more changes. This is powerful. 

  • Constructive communication is something I have found myself practicing many times over the years and this time I want to make sure it becomes ingrained in me. I believe I keep more and more each time I am mindful, but I really want to commit to more.  Thanks for the rich discussion on this last week everyone, it was powerful.

      Same! I find myself over and over going back to the questions "what are you trying to accomplish? What's the best way to get there?" It helps to keep me purposeful and engaged, particularly in tense or contentious discussions. In almost every situation, professional and private, one of the things I'm trying to accomplish is "build stronger relationships" and keeping that front of mind is a great way to stay constructive even when I'm feeling frustrated.
