In-Person Workshop
This Heart, Head, Hands Inspire Citizens’ weekend workshop is a highly interactive deep-dive, co-facilitated and modeled by practicing educators, into how educators and leaders in schools can co-create learning experiences that:
  • Integrate Futures Trends and Thinking for Education for flexible strategic visioning and global citizenship in a complex and uncertain world
  • Support all community members in developing an Ego to Eco mindset grounded in inner and outer peace, joy, sustainability
  • Apply a Heart, Head, Hands philosophy, an Empathy to Impact approach, and a Civic Literacies toolkit in diverse and dynamic student-centered learning
At the forefront of Education for Engaged Global Citizenship, Inspire Citizens, Chapters International, and Inter-Community School Zurich recognize that our schools, classrooms, and learners are inextricably and powerfully connected as global citizens, and that we need resources for and the time to practice how to bring environmental, economic, social, technological, mindful, and meaningful, action-driven experiences to our learners.

During this weekend program, we will engage in brave dialogue, immediately practice with a range of tools and resources, amplify our local community partnerships, build our global network, and design Empathy to Impact learning experiences that empower our learners to work together to shape a healthier, happier, and restorative future for ourselves, society, and the planet.
