Radical Listening

Radical Listening is a methodology that has been used by Health In Harmony and Alam Sehat Lestari around the world to seek the expertise of rainforest communities and identify what the best solutions are for protecting the rainforest and addressing the climate crisis. This methodology is applicable to many other areas in the planetary health field and in different contexts as well, such as corporate business, community projects, and personal growth.

Radical Listening:

  • Fosters a sense of agency and centralizes community knowledge
  • Listens to a group consensus
  • Yields solutions that are more likely to be implemented and are thus more efficient and effective
  • Identifies key fulcrums of change in a community
  • Invests precisely in community solutions
  • Focuses on mutual gift-giving
