of the Generative Social

– AWUG effect: Activities
with Unrelated
Generative effect
– Intentional effort to heal
and strengthen
relationships
– Festivals: cultural and
relationship renewal
• When the Generative Social
Space is
– Present and vibrant: self-
sustaining growth
– Weak and diminished:
violence and destruction
