Getting All Minds Working on Sustainability—A Workshop to Explore the “Art of Hosting” Sustainability Conversations
Offered at UMass Lowell by the Lowell Center for Sustainable Production and New Directions Collaborative, this workshop will introduce practical techniques to engage people in creating change and strategies for sustainability. The workshop is designed for sustainability coordinators and others who work with people over whom they have no authority. This interactive and experiential workshop will introduce simple yet transformational techniques for engaging individuals, groups and teams in collectively developing solutions. The “Art of Hosting” offers new ways of hosting and designing meetings and conversations that access the wisdom of a group in more powerful ways. The session will also include time for reflection on how these practices can be applied in the work of the participants. Fee: $45 ($25 for students).
