Edge-Walking with Peter Forbes: A Conversation About People, Place and Community
What makes a community thrive? How can we join people of different backgrounds in community and connection to the land? How do we “edge-walk,” or, navigate the borders found in both nature and culture? These are questions that Peter Forbes, co-founder of the Center for Whole Communities, works to understand as he empowers leaders and citizens from all walks of life to connect across boundaries and activate movements. Peter co-founded the Center for Whole Communities and started a family farm in the Mad River Valley of Vermont to put his years of conservation advocacy work into practice and help other people develop their own close connections to place. On December 2, join Host Kate Ebner and Peter Forbes for a conversation about the power of finding connection and shared values among difference.
I am a life-long student and advocate for the relationship between people and place. I've worked with many different people in many different geographies from remote Nepal to the Rocky Mountains to Central Harlem, New York. My life as emergency medical technician, photographer, political consultant, author, father, farmer, facilitator combine unusual aspects of the very practical with the wildly visionary to produce work that has been helpful to a variety of sectors: conservation, leadership development, sustainability, philanthropy, ethics, and social ventures. I take one specific assignments from mission-oriented groups and foundations for whom my skills can make a difference. I facilitate programs regularly through Center for Whole Communities as well as lead my own learning journeys for individuals.
For twenty years, I've been creating curricula and leading learning experiences designed to help people transform their lives and work to better fit their values and to build professional relationships across divides of class, race, profession and ideology. From 2003-2009, I co-created a specific curriculum called Whole Thinking that combined reflective practices, working with difference, story, dialogue, and visioning that became the highly successful, lead program of the organization I co-founded, Center for Whole Communities.
