Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses social webs. It presents three ideas that help to integrate the web of life for peacebuilding: (i) think, feel, and follow relationships; (ii) develop a capacity to see and think strategically about social spaces; and (iii) be smart flexible; the key to sustainability is not massive strength or greater force but adaptability: the capacity to recognize and then flexibly adapt processes of response that shift in form and shape while sustaining their core purpose of creating life.

Keywords: social webs; web makers; social change; peacebuilding

Chapter.  4955 words.  Illustrated.
