Education for Culture Change with Artemis Bear

Thursday April 25th
Doors & drinks 6.30pm; Event starts 7pm

What would the education system have to look like for it to move us to a culture that is functionally able to address climate breakdown? If we accept that capitalism is the central driver of climate breakdown we cannot continue to overlook school as the backbone of global capitalism.

Artemis D Bear worked in climate change policy in a previous life but left because they found it frustratingly ineffective, given not only the scale but also the depth of the issue. They came to understand that we can’t begin to address the environmental devastation wrought by this system of governance until we create a less adversarial and hierarchical culture.

Eight years ago they started a Self-Directed Learning Community called The Garden, which was the first of its kind in the UK. They also now work for Phoenix Education running the Freedom to Learn programme, supporting a network of over thirty SDLCs.

This interactive workshop will show not only a roadmap to a different education system but a different system of governance and a society that can both mitigate and adapt to climate change.

The evening will include a break for a one-pot vegan supper.
