Four types of work

* dismantling structures of violence, such as militarism, unjust economics, consumerism;

* redeeming structures that may be 'fallen', such as democratic systems, local economies/community spaces, education, faith traditions;

* preserving structures that give life, such as the natural world, human rights and freedoms, the arts;

* creating new life-giving structures, such as peace and solidarity networks, intentional communities and community building initiatives.
