I am always open for a genuine conversation. Please use my talk page...

Mischa Altmann (aka moaltmann)
I am a building my vision of enabling living a life without unwarranted exploitation of man, life or nature. Currently I work on rebuilding values through rediscovering the essence of religion, building resilience into vulnerable communities, and re-kindling the art of listening to build common visions.

Interests[edit | edit source]

  • systems thinking: cause, effect & delay, escalation & balance, big picture, whole systems approach
  • framework for strategic sustainable development (FSSD): a scientifically rigorous definition of sustainability + a host of tools to enable us to get there.
  • sanitation: composting toilets, biogas
  • construction: local materials, native designs, "bio solar haus" by a German retired engineer.
  • Art of Hosting (AoH): hosting and harvesting participatory conversations that matter and result in actions
  • religion and sustainability

Thanks[edit source]

it's nice to say thank you for many reasons including that it encourages more good work. I will try to do so too :)

Help Needed[edit source]

If you think I can help you, let me know.

Projects[edit source]

ongoing or planned projects

GEM mosquito control project[edit source]

Thank you for the response. I too am based in southern India. I have only ideas and a little time and am willing to share both. Have no hands on experience in projects & their execution. Yes, I have lots of confidence. How shall we go about?

Glad to see many things in common between us. System approach, biogas plant, energy conservation, environment protection, recycling & reuse etc. Eager to hear from you.

nice one Shooter!

I think the first step is to set up a project in the Portal:Projects. Once we have a "home" we can ask in the community for others that are interested or have pointers.

Funding might not be so crucial at this point but it may be needed to develop a rigorous methodology. Without one the trial will not be helpful in the scientific community...

GEMMC is already in Portal:Projects[edit source]

Hi Moaltmann,

GEM mosquito control is found to be already in the Projects Portal. I was not aware of this. So I think the first step is begun. Probably more details may have to be added, I suppose.

Sanitation[edit source]

Hi Mischa - I note your interest in sanitation & composting toilets, and thought I'd mention that a lot of work is being done in these areas on Appropedia lately. It would be great to get your input/editing. Thanks! --Chriswaterguy 20:32, 24 February 2013 (PST)
