You’re Invited to join a training for students, activists, artists, entrepreneurs, educators, organizers, and young leaders committed to transforming our world at the intersection of environmental sustainability, social justice, and human thriving.

 

We are living in a critical moment in history, facing challenges like no other generation before and a profound opportunity to remake our world. Our generation’s calling is clear: take bold and systemic action to create a thriving, just, and sustainable world that works for all.

- Connect with your purpose, and make an action plan for taking the next steps in your vision as a leader.
- Use embodiment practices, games, open space technologies, circle processes, and group activities, and creative expression to include all learners.
