Creating Models for a Future Without War
The Global Campus is an international and experiential education platform, a network of peace projects and communities engaged in creating regional models of peaceful and regenerative culture.
Dear Global Community,
Humanity is facing a global crisis of its own making. Mass extinction of our planets species reflects the depth of human destruction and its impact on our biosphere.
When we open to perceive this level of reality, we are confronted with despair, it seems impossible to open our hearts to the reality of global catastrophe and still be able to live in a meaningful way.
Einstein said: "You can never solve a problem on the level on which it was created."
We need to move to another level. We need a complete system change.
Despite the millennia-long history of continual wars and an unbearable extent of injustice all around the globe there exists still a spark of deep human dignity and a growing sense of what it actually means to be human.
There is a global movement stoking this spark. This glint of humaneness can be found in our own hearts and can be witnessed through the lives of many people that have walked before us and are walking with us now; people who have the courage to not submit to a system of war and take a stand for a different and just way of living.
The Global Campus is a project to protect and feed that spark with practical knowledge, strategy and global alliance. A project for gathering and developing information about how to live, in a decentralized and healthy way, where trust becomes again the base for our life on this planet.
All the knowledge to make this the reality exists! Now we are challenged to create networked intelligence to combine the different pieces in the most profound, healing and holistic way. One of the main research and work areas of the Global Campus is the design of social structures that allow trust to re-emerge among humans, both in local communities and in the global community of humankind.
"For peace to be achieved on the outside, it is crucial that it emerges on the inside, among human beings." - Dieter Duhm
"The real Utopia of a humane way of settling on this planet is a network of decentralized, self sufficient communities and regions." "“ Dieter Duhm
Tamera Healing Biotope, founded by Sabine Lichtenfels and Dieter Duhm, has long been engaged in a radical inner and outer peacework. Its Grace Movement has created connections with and supported a variety of projects around the world through education and actions of solidarity such as pilgrimages. From this network cooperation partners have emerged as base-stations of the Global Campus. They consist of local peace initiatives with a regional outreach that are in the process of becoming holistic autonomous models.
Together we create a global alliance, a common field for "˜civil disobedience' and obedience to the laws of life. Where injustice became law, disobedience becomes a duty!
The common learning of peace work, theoretical and practical, offers real alternatives to the current culture based on consumption, corruption and violence, and creates a profound sense of partnership and solidarity.
For one month from October 15th to November 15th, small groups of international "˜peace-workers-in-training' mainly from Tamera, will travel to the different centers, to support the next level of growth:
PORTUGAL: REGIONAL NETWORK, COMMUNITY BUILDING AND LANDSCAPE HEALING
COLOMBIA: YOUTH EMPOWERMENT, REGIONAL NETWORK AND LAND DESIGN
MIDDLE-EAST: PILGRIMAGE, PRV AND REGIONAL NETWORK
BRAZIL: COMMUNITY AND SONGS FOR A NEW CULTURE
KENYA: BUILDING COMMUNITY, VISION AND PLANNING
And More: Additional groups and actions with cooperation partners may happen around the world such as a networking trip through Germany, an "Art time" in Switzerland and a "Community time" in Greece.
The Global Campus educational gatherings include the local project carriers, international peace-workers-in training, international teachers and specialists, as well as members and knowledge-carriers of the local networks.
The education aims to be a holistic systems education, focusing on basic areas of human life: water, energy, nutrition and growing food, health, landscape healing, economics and community knowledge.
The practical education is driven by the needs of the projects. We incorporate the wisdom from the different projects as well as from local, global and historic teachers.
The theoretical education is based on growing planetary consciousness while deepening our understanding of the local conflicts and crises within a global context.
For this global dream to come true, we need financial support. Many have already formed a circle of support by sending donations. This has allowed the foundations of the Global Campus to form and your help is still needed for its further unfolding. You may want to support the educational gathering as a whole, you may choose to contribute to a particular project or support a particular participant. In this latter way you become personally connected. We wish to include you during our journey by sending you news, pictures, videos, articles, reflecting our inner and outer processes and achievements in each point of the globe.
The budget is distributed as follows:
60% transportation costs
30% operational costs and training costs for the participants in Tamera
10% food and material
