Our international conferences and local events have been melting pots for influencers, ideas, and policy development.

Pre COVID19, our unique, multi-disciplinary conferences explore the broad spectrum of alternative conflict resolution processes, including both the latest developments within each discipline and the potential for cross-fertilisation and collaboration between approaches. Plenary sessions dealt with issues of common concern while workshops enabled practitioners and policymakers within the various fields of mediation, arbitration, conciliation and restorative justice/practice to share learning and encourage innovation.

Living with COVID19 has shown us now more than ever, the importance of staying connected, which is why we are now in the process of developing online learning options fore our community. We are delighted to have  been partners with RJ Word Conference from its 2020 beginnings and look forward to our ongoing collaboration.

Drawing inspiration from Peter Block’s work, this workshop introduces six pivotal conversations aimed at fostering personal transformation and organizational evolution. Each conversation stems from thought-provoking questions, emphasizing the power of invitation over mandates, the significance of envisioning possibilities rather than fixating on problems, the importance of asserting refusal to lend weight to our affirmations, and the transformative potential of focusing on gifts rather than shortcomings. Participants will be equipped with actionable processes for effecting genuine social change. Objectives: This methodology, termed “A Small Group,” has been successfully implemented worldwide across diverse sectors, including business, education, grassroots community organizing, collaborative problem-solving, faith communities, and initiatives fostering “economies of compassion” or neighborly connections.

Participants will be prompted with a simple yet profound question…
