Warriors Without Weapons: How Learning Moves Trans-locally
This piece delves into the concept of “trans-local learning” — a way of sharing knowledge and learning in which separate, local efforts connect with each other, then grow and transform into communities of practice that together give rise to new systems. Warriors Without Weapons and the Oasis Game, two programs created by Berkana partners at Instituto Elos offer illuminating lenses for examining the concept of trans-local learning. By looking at what happened when the programs moved from Brazil to locations around the world we see how the communities determined what was essential and what was changed to fit the local culture and context. These stories offer tangible examples of what worked and what was learned in the transition to new contexts.
