People and Permaculture - Designing Effective Collaboration

Summary information

Skills and tools for productive organisations and individuals

Humans are social animals, we live, work and play in relationship with each other. These relationships can be hugely nourishing and productive, or challenging and frustrating, or both...
On this innovative course we will explore how permaculture design tools and other techniques can be used to help us come together and collaborate more easily and effectively in groups, businesses, relationships and organisations.

This course brings wisdom and tools from the People and Permaculture movement, Sociocracy, Nonviolent Communication, Dragon Dreaming and the 8 Shields. Participants will learn about themselves and about how groups work, and find new ways to bring regenerative design to their co-creativity and colaboration.

The 3 day weekend (Friday to Sunday) introduces tools and frameworks to design and grow better organisations, and the optional 2 day deepening (Monday and Tuesday) provides mentored design time to help participants explore and bring these ideas into their own lives and work more fully.
This course will be held in English language.
