Depth vs Breadth

BY EDDIE COULSON
@ VOL 13 ON DEC 05, 2017

Eddie  Coulson asks: How does a school truly make an impact on its students, parents and employees? How does a school create meaning beyond the curriculum and content it teaches? How does a school thrive, not just survive? How does a school “go deep” with the people it serves?

These are a few of the questions that motivate leaders to transform their schools into learning organizations, not just places to warehouse students and teachers. Eddie's presentation brings forth ideas that challenge the traditional educational system, spark new ideas and raise new questions about meeting the needs of students, teachers, parents and communities.

However, this process often follows an uninspiring, tried and tested formula. In her presentation, Gillian Harrison will explore a range of emerging techniques that encourage collaboration and engage local people, ultimately leading to the design of happier and healthier places for all.

Tiny houses and sustainable communities

BY JIMMYZ HIRST
@ VOL 25 ON FEB 28, 2018

Jimmy Hirst has been traveling the world researching Tiny Housing, sustainable communities (Eco Villages) for the past five years and looking at progressive living ideals. He believes we now have the need, the technology (like with Blockchain), and the consciousness to facilitate a shift in the western living paradigm, to help bring the mainstream population into embracing more sustainable and connective communities. He believes it’s time to reinhabit the village, holistically regenerating human and natural values, to last for generations to come.
