How Do We Green Our Learning?

  1. 1. How Do WE Green Our Learning ?
  2. 2. A Curated Conversation for World Heutagogy Day 2019 #wHday19 How Do WE Green Our Learning ?
  3. 3. There is school strike for climate @GretaThunberg And we think we can Green Our Learning
  4. 4. Themes How Do We Green Our Learning? some ideas… Ecosystem Planet and lifestyles Movement and natural curiosity Context and Place Science and Technology
  5. 5. How Do WE Green Our Learning ? Ecosystem
  6. 6. "To Green our learning we must learn to learn from nature and not just receive instruction from texts Nature talks to us in waves and particles. If we ride the waves together we can transcend our particular limitations. We are nature and it is our shared ecosystem of resources” Fred Garnett FRSA
  7. 7. “To Green our Learning, we need to enable learners: to use their natural, innate ability to learn rather than interfere with a perfect system by teaching; to find their natural talents and maximise them. Learning is a natural ecosystem that we should enhance rather than interfere with ” Stewart Hase – Dr Heutagogy
  8. 8. “Knowing the living world requires understanding that my body contains five times as many bacterial cells as those originating in my own DNA. I need to understand this and many other interpenetrations of being we call ecologies. I need to learn how to nurture the meta-ecology we call Earth.” Nigel Ecclesfield
  9. 9. How Do WE Green Our Learning ? Planet and lifestyles
  10. 10. “To Green our learning, we must green our lifestyles. To Green our learning, we must implement 3R’s Reduce Reuse Recycle in every walk of life. Teach our kids the same Lifestyle change towards Greening shall lead to a pollution free planet. Sustainability must be a deed rather than a word ” Vijaya Bhanu Kote Andhara Pradesh
  11. 11. “ACTION! Protecting our Earth is important. Positive education and awareness are the key. Green activities will give us the mindset to realize our planet's value. When we all work together, we can minimize the damage we cause to our rare planet and set the course for a brighter, greener future” Lemke Kamps Plastik Red
  12. 12. “For the planet to sustain life so that we can live in abundance, we need to learn together and fast. Our cultural values need to shift towards an ecological way of knowing. We say the devil is in the detail, but we forget it’s also in the patterns ” Bridget McKenzie Climate Museum
  13. 13. How Do WE Green Our Learning ? Movement and natural curiosity
  14. 14. “We can green our learning by going out into nature rather than just sitting and looking at photos of Ladywell Fields. I learnt more by putting on waders and walking in Deptford Creek than from 100 conferences. You need to see and smell the natural world to learn from it ” Paul Chapman – Urban Rivers
  15. 15. “We Green our Learning by moving our bodies. When we walk and talk, we learn and listen in a different way. When we move, dance or exercise after study or work, we embed the learning into our bodies. When we exercise we engage our mind differently and can innovate ” Kate Faragher - BeBright
  16. 16. “Be curious, confident and question authority (what’s in it for them?). Be a generalist, look for connections. Never specialise in someone else’s facts and tests. Open your heart and find people to help you understand, value and change things. Have fun and tell better stories than growth fixated consumer fetishists” Tony Wheeler - Amaltheus
  17. 17. “I green my learning by asking questions about the things that I use; What is it made of? – Where did it come from? – Why does it look like that? Who made it? – Can I take it apart? Can I adapt it? – Can I fix it? Do I need it?” Ian Woolley – Carpenter
  18. 18. How Do WE Green Our Learning ? Context and Place
  19. 19. “We want to invent ecological transitions at our place of work. We must question the consequences of our acts on a daily basis and learn to reuse and recycle our resources. Our ambitions come up against environmental limits; we need a sense of moderation & sobriety in our practices” Jean-Marc Gancille – Darwin-eco
  20. 20. “They put a fence in the middle of our park, round the spot where the Mayor wanted to build an official group. That evening it was covered with children’s drawings demanding a free lawn. His group was eventually established outside Parcul Circului This is our example of practical green learning” Razvan Necula – Parcul Circului
  21. 21. “Being an inspiring place, fostering creativity, collaboration and innovation in a FabLab. A place where we eat, sleep, enjoy unique rural nature and make cool stuff. A work in progress; with our residents we are always improving the spaces and adapting them based on the overall vision and current needs Sara & Carlos – Buinho
  22. 22. “We need to rethink our Third Places, make them very organic and free yet based on multi-disciplinary co-working; the ideas of collaboration on projects and space sharing. We need spaces that are welcoming and open where everyone can create new ideas and projects that can co-exist, collaborate and contribute organically Fernando & Ana – CoworkLisboa
  23. 23. How Do WE Green Our Learning ? Science and Technology
  24. 24. “Gather evidence. Test your assumptions. Learn to model. Use the many tools available. Learn variables that do good, learn to amplify them. Learn variables that do bad, learn to attenuate them. Learn that, although crying is useful and necessary, pain is relieved by "making" things better. Wax on, wax off ” Martin Owen - Bangor
  25. 25. “Travel by car and plane is a major source of pollution. With more trust and better use of technology we can allow many more people to work from home. Lessons and lectures can also be delivered online, reducing travel by students and staff.” Nick Jeans – Sero
  26. 26. “Technology is order imposed on nature. We need a natural philosophy which respects diverse opinions not pronouncements of great men. Nature is built with fractals and exists in a quantum universe, but we are oppressed by mechanical institutions and linear thinking. Let's become learning alchemists co-creating knowledge” Fred Garnett – Republic of Learning

  30. 30. We started Curated Conversations as a kind of “wisdom of crowds” method for sharing deep knowledge quickly. A number of people (12- 20) with expertise or experience summarise their understanding in 50 words. From these contributions both a shared narrative emerges and some recommendations.
