There are a number of Pre-Consultation Gatherings happening before the Consultation. Have a look below.

Integral Mission and Community Health Workshop

 

Local ownership and sustainability in community health

Integral mission, marginalizing health conditions and sustainability: identifying challenges and exploring alternative approaches

Interventions in health provision need to be sustainable, locally owned and managed and without “start and stop” inputs. The pattern of outsiders / westerners arriving to solve community problems was often the historical norm, but it led to unhealthy dependency. At the same time, many of the best-known integral mission approaches – Umoja and Disciple the Nations Alliance – mobilize the community with zero input. However, this is difficult where people need medicine, clinical support or ongoing self-care support to prevent ulcers or other complications for people affected by Neglected Tropical Diseases (leprosy, lymphatic filariasis, trachoma, Buruli ulcer, leishmaniasis, etc.), diabetes or other conditions causing limitation of movement or nerve damage. Self-care also uses a participatory methodology, but marginalized peoples are likely to be excluded and their needs not addressed by the wider community, who may in fact be stigmatizing them.

Participants will examine the challenges, assess models and identify building blocks of sustainability.

2018 Urban Shalom Summit Pre-Consultation – The Practice of Hope

The next Urban Shalom Summit (formerly ISUM) will be held in the Philippines after the Micah Global 7th Triennial Consultation in September.

Hope is something that can easily go missing in our rapidly urbanising world. As people struggle with day to day life, the effects of isolation and disconnection, poverty, unsanitary conditions, unjust economic systems and fast changing environments, the belief that life could ever be any better begins to fade.  As people of faith we have a mandate and the ability to be bearers of hope in the spaces and places that God has called us to occupy. At the summit, we will explore together how we can practice hope across the sectors of a city and begin to see shalom or flourishing replace disconnection and hopelessness.

An open pre-forum session will be held on the morning of September 10 before the Micah Global 7th Triennial Consultation.

Registrations are open!
