Healthy Human Culture: Designing for Health. Webinar recording available

'Designing for Health' was the first webinar part of the Conflict Resilience Series, a series highlighting some fantastic resources on the benefits of addressing and re-framing conflict to maintain effective groups.

Healthy Human Culture (HHC) is a set of understandings and practices developed by Sophy Banks that help create relationships, communities and societies where all beings can thrive. It explains why we create harm even when we don’t mean to, and how we can address this with compassionate and effective action.

Sophy Banks, Dita B Vizoso and Theresa Fend guided us into exploring the Healthy Human Culture's 4 Quadrant map, a tool that allows us to track health and unhealth in the different levels of any system, whether that is your community, organisation or family, and identify ways to move towards more health.

The guests

Sophy, Dita and Theresa

Sophy Banks' eclectic life has been guided by an overarching question: what helps humans to create healthy, joyful, life affirming ways of being, and why do we so often not, even when we really mean to? Her current work focuses on two areas which feel vital in these times – recreating practices of shared grief tending, and exploring Healthy Human Culture, the culmination of her life’s journey so far.

Dita B Vizoso is dedicated to regeneration, of people and land. She convenes and holds spaces for deep inquiry and composting. She’s walking and sharing the path where both grieving and joyous hope nourish thriving for self and others. She invites the wisdom of the physical world, of our bodies and the life around us, to support the development and strengthening of return paths to health. Health of culture, of our selves, of the land.  Find out more about her and her offerings here.

Theresa Fend is a facilitator, community builder and climate activist. She is committed to fostering regenerative cultures through collaboration, care and play. Since 2016 she has been working with decentralised networks and international communities. She gives workshops, holds circles, supports the organisation of collaborative gatherings and joins small teams working towards regenerative futures. Find more at her website.

Podcast interview to Sophy Banks on Healthy Human Culture:

Healthy Human Culture: Diving deep into ourselves, each other and the world, with Sophy Banks
How do good people create systems of oppression? What is Health? What is unHealth? And how do we move from the latter to the former in ways that mean good people create systems of co-creation, inter-being and connection? This week, we explore all these questions with Sophy Banks, Founder and Lead Facilitator of Healthy Human Culture.

Inspired by the research "Transforming Conflict A Group Relations Perspective" as well as Healthy Human Culture approach, she came up with that beautiful digital drawing.
