You are at the other side of the world! Do you work in the middle of nowhere looking for new sources of oil/gas?
Are you linked up with the local community in any way?
I'm working on a wordpress.com site for my youth council. They have a meeting on Saturday where they will be deciding their campaigns for the year. From there thye need to make an action plan and an online presence will be part of it.
Off to make a cup of tea and wake up a bit more.
This is a great thing that we are building here. I am amazed at how so many good people with such fascinating lives have been brought into my circle and I’m so glad that you are one of them.
This is an incredible way of coming to know and be acquainted with the activities and lives of people I no doubt would never have met. It is also a great way of staying in touch with those that I do. This common ground of communication (though the threads may be few in the beginning) is the start of the weave of a fabric of consciousness and inter-relatedness that is yet to unfold in its entirety. I am so grateful to be sharing that with you.
I look forward to getting to know you all here, and to receiving and giving valuable information and support.
Love and peace,
Dr. Aldo Michael

BackgroundOne of the challenges of assessment processes with young people is how to secure their involvement and active participation. Only too often assessment can become something that is ‘done’ to young people (or a form that needs to be filled in), rather than a dynamic process that puts them at the centre, something theyare involved with and have some ownership over. The assessment tools called ‘CAF Cards’ and ‘Road Sign Cards’ have been developed with young people to work with the…See More
