Change Management for Sustainability
Learning for Change
What is it?
The driving force behind the concept of Learning for Change is the perceived need to accelerate the building of sustainable human societies. The process is intended to facilitate learning from experience, as applied to all aspects of sustainable development.
How is it used?
Collaborative Learning, gathering people from different backgrounds, each bringing a real-life example from which all can learn; 2-3 days.
Project Assessment, bringing together stakeholders from a single project, department or team; usually 1 day.
Conferences: Part or whole of a conference can be designed to maximize exchange of experience between participants, using the Learning for Change methodology.
Long-term, long-distance collaboration:
We are experimenting with an internet-based version of Learning for Change to support on-going exchange of experience between partners in long-term cooperation projects.
Pedagogy: At least one school has begun using Learning for Change as a basic pedagogy on which to base the work of the school, with all staff and all pupils engaged in an on-going collaborative learning process.
Facilitation training: Something about that…
The book is available as an Apple iBook and as a pdf. Part 1 comprises a summary of the process, while Part 2 documents the individual methods and tools used. Some of the models and theories are summarized in Part 3. Contact us to get the book.

Meetings culture | Build an inclusive and collaborative workplace culture by shifting the ways of conducting meetings.
