A Blade of Grass on Mars


“A blade of grass is a commonplace on Earth; it would be a miracle on Mars”
- Astronomer Carl Sagan

Can we really be facilitators of the transition from hopelessness, shame, self-doubt and a desire to be 'fixed', to acceptance, celebration, leadership and humility?

We’ll be wrapping-up with an opportunity to reflect on how these ideas can be applied in our own organisations and communities. We’ll hear about two models that are promoting active citizenship as part of recovery, not just within the recovery community but out there, in the ‘real world’.

There’ll be an opportunity to consider how active citizenship can work within differing organisational structures (NHS/voluntary sector), share potential pitfalls and encourage delegates to head off with their own building blocks to perhaps make a difference to our multifaceted communities.
