One of the things I did in working with the women's groups — and this was the only group I was able to actually get together the whole time I was there — was to work with them on envisioning their future. One of the things I've done is work on workshops for envisioning the future of a world without weapons. That work follows the work that Elise Boulding did with envisioning the future and the world without weapons. I transformed that back to envisioning the future of this group, which also meant envisioning the future of this group in whatever they saw as Cyprus ten years, 20 years down the road.
