o   In this paper written in 1974 Dr. Neville Yeomans sets out his vision for a way for possible global transition to a social life world centred on humane wellbeing and profound respect for the Earth and all life-forms. For many, economic globalisation is right now concentrating and cementing an inhumane global order of immense destructive power in the hands of a few. The spirit in action of Inma is life-force towards a balancing global integral humane transition.  Laceweb - On Global Reform and International Normative Model Areas (Inma)


o   This paper explores issues for government in facilitating community grassroots well-being action. Typically, governments carve the world into departments, then sectors, and then programs. Programs are typically top down and based on service delivery by experts. Evaluation is typically based on the forgoing framing. In stark contrast, community based grassroots action is often holistic, local and lateral, and entails mutual help rather than service delivery. Evaluation is an integral aspect of the unfolding grassroots process. This paper outlines the essence of Laceweb self help action and issues for governments supporting this action.  Governments and Facilitating Community Grassroots Wellbeing Action
