Abstract

 

It has been a rewarding journey for Mr. Christopher Day when he began to listen to his inner voice calling for meaningful work abroad. Initially volunteering in the neighborhood of his home town to support vulnerable people in need, he continued to nurture his curiosity through learning and experimentation. Ten years on, he can look back on a journey that has taken him across the globe, and taken him to conflict zones and social innovation spaces in Ethiopia, India, Israel, Afghanistan, Uganda, South Sudan and beyond. "When there is conflict, sustainable change needs to be linked to addressing the often hidden root causes in order for reconciliation to take hold….but the question is how we can (better) identify the right entry points, relate to, and engage with, the affected communities and people, and nurture the complex social dynamics in order to strengthen peaceful means towards resolution." Social change can occur in incremental or in radical ways, and we do not need to work in so many cultures first in order to recognize that so much positive development awaits our support right at our doorsteps. We feel lucky to listen to his insights, to reflect on our own learning journey and to feel inspired to take action in our immediate surroundings.
