Human-Nature Relationships for Transformative change

3 ECTS, Wageningen University & Research

The first edition Summerschool on Human-Nature relationships for Transformative Change

This work aims to reignite a thriving connection to life in ourselves, with others and the more-than-human world by fully experiencing the beauty and wonder of nature but also fully acknowledging feelings of loss and decay. In this training we offer various nature- and community based practices that can support you in your personal and professional life to activate hope wherever you go.
The PhD summer school is an opportunity to explore theories and practices of how we relate to nature and how this relates to transformative change towards sustainable futures. It will be held at Wageningen University, on campus and in nearby nature, with two nights of camping during the week of 16-20 September 2024. The school will be immersive (prioritising experiences of natural environments), interactive (based around discursive and relational activities with other learners and the natural world), and reflective (setting aside time to acknowledge deeper processes of change within oneself).

What is offered

Immersive, interactive and reflective teaching methods around three themes
1. Interfaces of HNR and transformative change with focus on the global north.
2. Embodied experiences and inner transformations for social, cultural personal and systemic change
3. Practical tools and self-reflection on pathways towards sustainability for people and nature together.
Deadline for application: 1 April 2024
