We dream of a world where communities take action based on their strengths and realise their objectives

The Constellation is an organization at the service of a network of people and communities who are acting locally to create a better world.

We stimulate and connect local responses around the world.

We live in a world where there is no shortage of challenges, whether individual, local or global. These challenges affect us all. If we can realise our capacity to be actors in our own lives, we can also activate our collective responsibility to co-create our world.

Our experience has taught us that communities can and do respond to the challenges that they face when they take ownership of those challenges.

Our support process enables resilience in communities, who take the lead in solving their problems

In The Constellation, we seek to accompany the community as it takes the path to ownership of its challenge.

We transfer an appreciative and supportive mindset to the groups we work with.

We stimulate conversation in a non-hierarchical setting where members share and learn together.

Every occasion becomes an opportunity to connect, to learn from collective intelligence, and to grow.

We create occasions for communities to share and to learn in order to stimulate community-to-community transfer. This transfer then takes on a life of its own and spreads.

Our Inspiration

Our discovery began 23 years ago with HIV/AIDS.

In Thailand, Uganda and Brazil people had begun to address this issue publicly and to recognise that it was theirs to deal with. They took ownership of their response to HIV. This was the basis of a local response that reduced the impact of the epidemic.

It also led to the foundation of The Constellation in 2004.
