The Association “Les Coccinelles” is a little organisation with a big dream! We are a bunch of committed day dreamers, gate keepers, bridge builders, soul speakers, web weavers, light bearers, food growers, wound healers, trail blazers, truth sayers, life lovers & peace makers… (as “Climbing Poetree” would say) and we like to develop fun and positive pathways towards sustainability by using the great tool of Permaculture Design and non-formal education, mixing these all up and creating new exciting moments of sharing knowledge and wisdom with especially young people, young adults, wise old adults people and children.
Co-operate & Co-create training course proposes strategies to shift from competition based relationships to cooperation based connections, from fear to love, within and as part of the web of life.
Have you ever realized that we are living in a unique time in history, and we are facing a convergence of environmental, economic and social crises? With Cooperate & Co-create our goal is to tackle this situation, understanding the crisis as an opportunity to evolve and reframe our worldview. We propose strategies to shift from competition based relationships to cooperation based connections, from fear to love, within and as part of the web of life. We will explore our competences, with inclusive and participatory methodologies; developing attitudes for collaborative and synergistic relationships, skills for design thinking & co-creation and knowledge about ourselves. All this by implementing tools such as:
• non-violent communication
• cooperative games and gamification of learning
• horizontal decision making as Sociocracy
• collective ritual creation inspired by Starhawk
• nature reconnection
• leadership management inspired by Processwork
The course will be facilitated by Cecilia Furlan, Genny Carraro, Jose Maria Donado and Valentina Cifarelli.
