Going Local Going Green – Workshop
Tim, Cai, Holly and Jo went deep to explore what it really means to go local and go green.
Resulting in falling apart, ending up in therapy, moving out of the city and quitting our jobs and relationships. If we really want change to happen, why are we still working to the same models? Why aren’t we looking to ourselves for guidance and for transformation? Action learning is a framework for exploring this process based on living open ended questions, and trusting in ourselves, our relationships and our environment. Action learning is a way to offer support, solidarity and risk being vulnerable to help each other ask the hard questions to make change happen. Action learning allows the future to emerge rather than being prescribed by the status quo.Come and explore how this works in practice and how the power of a good question could apply to you.
