The Dagomba tribe in Ghana, Africa has an ancient tradition of sharing. It is their belief that we are all brothers and sisters; and family takes care of each other. Traditional Dagomba live in an inclusive society. Land is considered not be owned, it is to be preserved for future generations. But tradition is dying and fertility of the land is declining. 

With Leap into Life we combine ancient wisdom with modern social technologies to create a Sharing Economy; in Ghana, but also in the Netherlands. What is an inclusive society and why is that important for us, living in the West? What can we learn, and contribute to a reality where we share and pass on to the next generations?

In this session Alain Volz will share some of his experiences as a Westerner ‘adopted’ by the Dagomba tribe. From there we will do an inquiry with the questions above.

Host: Alain Volz, Founder Leap into Life & Dipalaya Shea Butter
