"Integral Without Borders is, in my opinion, the best and most important organization addressing sustainability from an Integral, comprehensive view, which makes it the most important organization of its kind.  Please look them over carefully and join with them in whatever way you possibly can.  You won’t regret it!"  ~ Ken Wilber, The Integral Vision

Integral Without Borders is a global network of practitioners dedicated to integrating perspectives and manifesting greater depth in the praxis of international development. We hold events and telecourses, offer mentoring and consulting, and provide resources. Welcome!

The purpose of this short paper is to suggest a different paradigm for an increased alignment between Donors, Agents of Change (AOC) who are often NGOs and Beneficiaries, which ultimately is likely to be more authentic, more effective and more durable.

Integral Practitioner in Praxis - Conference in South Africa [Program added]

Mar
30
Tlholego EcoVillage

Dates: 28 May to 01 June 2012

For many years now we have seen programmes offering theory and theoretical discussions on integral practice.  Most of these have dealt with the internal development of the practitioner and although this is very important it is now time to move on.  It is important for us now to look at the way, in ‘real’ situations of praxis a practitioner would use this theory and possibly years of individual development/practice, to provide further insight and tools for the complex situations found in international development.

Making Meaning of Climate Change: Two New Resources!

Feb
03

Two new resources have been uploaded to the Resources section of this site. Both are products of a year-long collaborative project between two IWB partner organizations, Drishti-Centre for Integral Action in Canada and Centro Bartolome de las Casas in El Salvador. The project sought to include 'human dimensions' in climate change adaptation engagement, in a context where climate change is predominantly still engaged as a scientific or technical problem.

Integrating the subjective dimensions of climate change in El Salvador

Integrating Subjectivity into Climate Change Adaptation

For the field of climate change studies, the issue of climate change is addressed as something environmental, with a focus on the technical and scientific aspect of the issue. But in the lived realities of Salvadorans (and many others on the planet) this is a matter of life and death, faith and hope, social justice and community resilience. In this project, IWB partner organizations Drishti and Centro Bartolome de las Casas, have sought to include the ‘human dimensions’ of climate change adaptation by combining methodologies in an integral approach. It is a first step in a much longer and comprehensive action-inquiry.
