Learning for Change
It is possible to shift the pace of sustainability and CSR work by organizing learning in such a way that it maximises the use of experience. Participants bring their own case studies, systematically extracting new learning during the workshop. A toolbox builds a bridge between the workshop experience and everyday reality.
A half day (introduction) up to the full three-day workshop addressed primarily to leaders or managers of sustainability work. The methodology, called Learning for Change, offers an effective format for planning and evaluation meetings as well as providing a basis for credible sustainability reporting. Participants take home a toolbox for making the daily sustainability work more effective.
The methodology builds on action research over 10 years with a focus on behaviour change in the context of sustainable development; and is today actively used by hundreds of previous workshop participants worldwide. The course documentation contains a summary of the workshop as implemented, as well as a digital book covering the methodology and theories.
