What is Trans-dimensional Knowledge Creation?

Trans-dimensional knowledge creation is learning intervention by visionary leaders, managers and experts to innovate negative world views such as class-consciousness, racism and impunity. The creation of trans-dimensional holistic knowledge is about developing new perspectives and intuitions based on the values of freedom, trust, peace, justice and the traditional African values of Ubuntu (togetherness, respect, humaneness , dignity and the interconnectedness of people and with their environment.)

The purpose of this blog is to share creative and practical ideas on how learning intervention could serve to change the negative world views of people in the interest of peace, freedom and justice.
