A visitorship report by Sue Paton
The Schumacher course, called ‘Co-creating an emerging future 2019: A Certificate in leadership and facilitation’, involved a two week residential course followed up with eight skype sessions with a chosen group of participants.
The residential course component was more of an experience, much like a spiritual retreat, as opposed to being a conventional course. The retreat was supported by the theoretical idea of theory U where we were led through a process of self examination while submerged in nature.
We were exposed to many ideas around creating a sustainable future which I have included in this paper. The course supports the idea that with personal change, fierce resolve, and passionate activism we will find the best leadership for the future.
