In “Living in a Changing World” I suggested a workshop where I’d spend a week basically trying to transfer everything I know about infrastructure-centric crisis response; an ultra-deep dive for people who had come through Permaculture or Transitions or other kinds of risk management education, and wanted something which took that kind of thinking and applied it to fast moving big problems.
I’d now like to suggest the other approach, going in mob handed. At the limit, a Mob Handed workshop would have eight people teaching together with different skills and different perspectives, to give an over-all well-rounded perspective on all sides of the current crisis, and more importantly, our personal future responses.
I’ve put up a editable google doc,
where you can take a look at the possible schedule, write up what you would teach as part of that group, or indicate you’d be interested in coming if this course is run.
This is a bit more flexible and open than these kinds of approaches typically are, but what I see is that I’m constantly moving in a multi-skilled environment and being blown away by the depth of knowledge that other specialists have in their core areas. A chance to sit down for a week and get people’s deepest realizations and best perspectives right across that entire field of expertise would be very valuable to me personally, and perhaps for a lot of other people.
(there should be a framed version of the current doc here, sorry if you can’t see it – gdocs can be a bit squirrely.)
