Slide 1

I would recommend this course to those interested in Earth-centred issues. The course introduced me to many new ideas, perspectives, and strategies, including systems change, alternative economic and legal approaches, and Indigenous Relationist ethos.

This course has been amazing and I am beyond glad that I took part. Engaging topics, inspiring guest speakers and motivating members.

This course has changed the way I see the world, and the people, around me.

Slide 2

...this course was fantastic , thought provoking, extremely informative relevant and positive in the face of adversity…

Earth-Centre Futures course

This course has renewed my energy and optimism for the future. It is a highly pertinent and inspiring course for anyone who feels distressed about the current climate crisis or disillusioned with the systems that have lead us here. It highlights the brilliant innovation and discussions that are already happening in the world, and provides coherent frameworks for change that not only make sense but feel good too.

What an absolute relief!

This thoughtfully-constructed course connects deep ideas with interdisciplinary practice in an enlivening and impactful way. Come for the impressive line-up of guest speakers; stay for the well-paced course materials, warm facilitation, community connections and enthusiastic support for applying Earth-centred concepts to your life and work.
