Educating Towards Sustainability: Connecting to Self, Others and Nature
March 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Offered by our colleagues in Ireland, this presentation is part of the Camphill Initiatives for Social Ecology 2022 webinar series ‘Living a Connected Life, Freedom from Exclusion.’ The event is free, but registration is required!
More information from the organizers:
“The overarching theme for the symposium is Living a Connected Life. Through this theme, we will explore inclusion, self-advocacy, community building, care and support, inclusive research, meaningful work, active citizenship, belonging and friendship- all beyond the context of service provision.
We have invited speakers connected to the international Camphill movement and thinkers, doers and activists from Ireland and overseas whose work and lived experience provide a broader picture and context for Camphill’s vision of social renewal as it diversifies in the 21st Century.
We aim to capture the collective insights and use them as a platform for launching new initiatives to help build more connected and inclusive lives for people with intellectual disabilities in Ireland.”
Each webinar will last two hours, with a key-note speaker followed by interactive break out-groups.
Connected lives, what are the ingredients for connectedness and fulfilment? The international perspective.
