EDE Schloss Glarisegg, Switzerland
Type: Face to Face
Start Date: 14 January 2022
End Date: 19 February 2022
We are delighted to be offering another EDE in the heart of winter and in the cozy settings of Schloss Glarisegg. We have added the title “Creating a Transformative Culture” because we recognise that as we move into a time of unpredictable change, we need to cultivate some skills in dealing with the unknown. We ask how do I anchor myself in times of uncertainty? How does transformation happen, in myself, in others and in society at large? How do I become an effective change agent and what is my role to play?
We welcome a large and diverse group so that we may practice the group skills we will learn. This year we have a focus on learning Sociocracy, Possibility Management and the Forum, along with conflict resolution and group decision making. Our experience with many groups is that if you have these skills, your projects will have a much better chance of succeeding!
The community lies on the Swiss side of Lake Constance, nestled between the forest and beach. The castle community is a home a place for encounter, awareness , consciousness and being and holds 33 adults and 20 children. The community also hosts a seminar center, a school for children, a forest kindergarden, a permaculture and agroforestry, and is home to artists , musicians and therapists.
How to run an EDE?
Several of our EDE graduates have carried on organising EDE programmes in their local areas, and you are warmly encouraged to do so after completing your course.
The recommended time frame of an EDE is four weeks, however this is not fixed and varies with each individual programme.
The material can be condensed into smaller workshops, spread out over a longer period, or distributed in blocks at different times and locations.
