Welcome to this deep-dive into Changemaking!! This residential is an intensive, immersive & multidisciplinary experience, helping you build a toolkit for making positive change: with purpose, courage, knowledge and ambition.
During this week we’ll explore the relationship between Self, Society, World - honing our understanding and skills across each domain, and becoming more confident moving between each in ways that build us and others up; and that increase our capacity for leadership and wise action.
Self: changemaking begins with you
- Compassionate mind-sets
- Values & your personal manifesto
- Deep Listening
- The powerful effects of imagination
Society: the tools you need to make a mark
- How power works
- Rhetoric and charisma
- Developing ethical reasoning
- Creativity, art and mindful practices
World: levers for change
- Futures Literacy
- Systems & design thinking
- Case study field trip: sustainable food systems
- Case study theory to practice: the Inner Development Goals
The programme includes plenaries, workshops, ‘building the toolkit’ parallel sessions, peer-coaching groups, 1:1 mentoring, discussions, artistic performances, a field trip, access to a co-working/quiet space, and plenty of good food and drink in the mix. There’ll be evening sessions with world-leading changemakers, and the chance to network with them over dinner. And at every step of the way you’ll be invited to reflect on the skills you’re building and the insights you’re developing, layering up the learning as you go. The Residential is also supported by ‘Prompts for Thinking’ shared by padlet during the week, & an extensive reading list.
