Feedback from the first course:
“I can't think of any kind of feedback other that WOW, what an amazing journey! I recommend this to anyone seeking tools to co-create societal and planetary thriving.”
“I really enjoyed this course and it will stay with me for a long time for sure. The wealth of resources shared is mind-blowing and I felt very privileged to hear from experts from such incredible projects. But most importantly, this course gave me a sense of hope, a grounded hope, that the new society is here already, that is bigger than what I thought, getting bigger every day, and this is a gift.”
“I am incredibly grateful for this course, the way it has been curated and facilitated, the amount of content to immerse myself in and the amazing community it has connected me to. As someone who is working on and in leadership of implementing a large scale vision working towards regenerative futures, much of this has been invaluable.”
