Change Makers at Sea

Training Course

10-17 June 2012 | Baltic Sea, Germany

From June 10th to 17th, 2012 an intergenerational group of 30 change makers will set sail on a Tall Ship in the Baltic Sea.
Learn to sail on a big ship while honing your change-maker skills, making new friends, super-charging your projects, and enjoying the summer coast on the Baltic. Over the course of one week, facilitated by workshops, deep conversations and the movement of the sea, the group will explore the notion of ‘cultural maturity’ in an era of global change and in the quest for a more sustainable way forward for our societies. This is a voyage of discovery to explore and clarify the unique and diverse value of being human in all stages of life; honoring that only by combining the push for change with the wisdom of maturity can we tackle the challenges of our time.
