Type of submission (Please choose one)[edit]

  • Presentation (one-to-many)


In order to connect and to sustain relationships with another people (community members, affiliation volunteers, medias, partners etc.) it is important to speak (ad understand) "their language", or to be "on the same wavelength". This is widely dependent on the values (and related world-views) of particular people.

According to the research of prof. Clare Graves, human value structures are categorizable into distinctive stages and are evolving in predictable way with clear directionality. Understanding the nature of these stage and patterns of the evolution will help you understand your society, community, affiliation and help you to trigger changes in manner that works.

Expected outcomes[edit]

The participants will understand basics of values and world-views evolution. After additional self-learning they will be capable to use language and wording according to the values of the audience for better outreach, work with volunteers and internal communication.
