CREATING THE FUTURE WE ALL WANT TO LIVE IN
- building capacity for real dialogue and collaboration across civil society, private and public sectors
An invitation to explore & practice
The Art of Participatory Leadership
Recent events around the world and in our own society are putting the focus ever more strongly on our need to learn how to work well with differences and complexity. We are over-saturated with images of how things are falling apart, but what will help them come together? How can we manage the dance between the individual - where all of us wanting to find our own purpose and unique expression - and the collective - the ways we are living and working together - that create the society we want to be part of?
Perhaps you’ve also been asking yourself these questions:
What will we learn and practice together?
Hosting and harvesting conversations that matter
Conversation, participatory leadership and learning how to work in continual emergence are ways of moving into wiser action.
The Art of Participatory Leadership is a 4-day residential training designed for learning simple yet powerful practices that build community, activate collective intelligence and foster individual and collaborative leadership practices that give us the capacity to navigate the complexity of our world as it is today.
During the training we will explore a range of participatory tools, concepts and methods, including:
Who should come?
Do you recognise these?
If so, then this training is for you.
Whether you come from the private or public sector, you work for yourself or are coming as an individual, this training is for you. Meeting across the private and public sectors, NGOs and private activists creates a vibrant learning space, which we can build on in our work. If you work in a team, it is most valuable to come as a team, making the application of what you’ve learned much easier to integrate. We’re inviting:
We invite you to join us and to connect with other practitioners, leaders and innovators seeking to build their capacity.
We look forward to welcoming your presence and your contributions!
Ishoj Conference Center is a welcoming, friendly and relaxed venue. Our programme has been designed as a residential programme as staying together has shown to considerably enhance the experience and the value of the training. We therefore highly recommend you stay onsite.
The venue is situated close to the beach and 15 km's from Copenhagen Central Station. It is easy to get there by public transportation and by car.

* We think that building capacity for participatory leadership amongst young leaders in our communities is an important investment in the future of our society. If you want to support us with this and have the capacity to pay a little more than the base rate, we gratefully welcome larger financial contributions. Contributions will be used to support young leaders in the field who find it challenging to pay the full fee, but are eager to participate and can only do so through a scholarship.
