When Did You First Realize You Were Green?
Living in Africa, makes you realize that without nature there can also be no human beings. Thus, perhaps some 20 years ago I became aware about how we human beings exploit nature.
How Do You Want to Make the World a Better Place?
My priority is poverty alleviation, especially for women, traditional people, and nature, all of whom are dominated and exploited by the political and economic elites, which I call patriarchy. I work for an end to patriarchy, and establishing a quality of life for society and nature worldwide.

My name is Jytte Nhanenge. I am deeply concerned about global poverty, the effects of which kill 50,000 people daily, the majority being children. I worked with development in Africa for many years, but I had to conclude that in its present form, development cannot alleviate poverty. I then settled in Mozambique and embarked on a lengthy study period at University of South Africa (UNISA), as an external student. I was searching for the root cause of poverty with the aim of finding a way to alleviate it. That search took me far and wide and it lasted almost 13 years. During my studies, I came to realize that poverty and inequality, together with other global crises - including war and violence, human rights abuses, and environmental degradation - all derive from the same source: patriarchal domination. It is a complex dualist and reductionist perceptual system that prioritizes all considered masculine or yang, while subordinating all being feminine or yin.

At the end of my studies, I wrote a dissertation on the subject, which was well received at examination. Having secured a publishing contract, I rewrote the dissertation into book form, and in 2011, University Press of America (Rowman and Littlefield) published the book. The title is,
"Ecofeminism: Towards Integrating the Concerns of Women, Poor People, and Nature into Development."



The book is available on the website of the publishers

Rowman and Littlefield

I was grateful when Gregory Hilbert and Suzanne Sparling, the founders of Sustainability Education Network, SEN4Earth, wanted to be the very first ones to make a book review, just upon its publication. You can read the book review in the below website, and you can also view the discussions on Gregory’s post at Care2:

SEN4Earth:
Ecofeminism Book By Care2 Friend Jytte Nhanenge Just Published


I have now finalized building a website over the values in the book.

The official name of the website is "Forum for Holistic Transformation." The full version of the name is "Forum for Holistic Transformation: Ending Patriarchy, and Creating a Quality of Life for Society and Nature Worldwide." But in short it is called "Intsangano." The website explains why that name is chosen.

Intsangano is an educational website. It is explaining how the political and economic elites – called Patriarchy – have managed to earn huge profits based on dominating society and exploiting nature, causing serious crises for life everywhere. We – people from all walks of life – need to educate ourselves in order to understand, how the elite manage to rule this world via their ideology, structures, and institutions. When we grasp how they manipulate us, we can become a force to be reckoned with, and together we can end this dangerous, life-threatening domination.

Intsangano is consequently a space where ordinary people can unite. We can either be teachers sharing our knowledge with others, or students learning from those who are willing to share their knowledge – or both. Everything is done as a free and voluntary activity, meant to benefit all, giving us insight so that we can stand up to our political leaders, challenge them in debates, and eventually become leaders ourselves. Thus, the aim is to end the current unbalanced political values and the focus on never-ending economic growth and profit-making that only benefits the elite. These economic values are causing global crises of war and violence, inequality and poverty, human rights abuses, and degradation of nature. Hence the positive goal is to re-create a quality of life for society and nature worldwide.

Welcome to Intsangano:




Due to my new poverty study and the work with the website, I will not often be available at my green face. Hence, if you send me messages, you may not receive a reply. Sorry for that. However, you can always get in touch with me via the website.

Sending you much care,
Jytte



My friend Zen Whisperingtree did the technical building of this page. Thank you Zen
