Towards Social Transformation
Harm, chronic stress and instability create negative psychosocial impacts which can thwart peace and stability.
Third i Paradigm explores how these experiences shape and influence social dynamics including the social construction of belief systems, belonging, group dynamics and social structures.
We promote social change through building self and community efficacy to help individuals and communities engage in meaningful social and civic engagement.
Ultimately, this journey sets the foundation for longer term structural change, and challenges negative alternative narratives, such as violent extremism.
“We are living in the middle of chaos…everyone forgets who they are and what they are capable of. This training helped me to discover myself. I found myself and knew I can make changes in the community.”
