Training course in leadership for sustainability

Author: Rubén Hernández Romero

Torri Superiore, a rebuilt village from the medievo era.

It has been already a month since I came back from Torri Superiore. However, it feels like it happened yesterday. The reason why I went there is because I had the chance to be involved in an Erasmus+ Training Course organized by  “Yes to Sustainability” and I wanted to learn skills and tools to better deal with challenges in my community in Ananda Gaorii.  

The Training “Young Leaders for Sustainability” took place in a restored ecovillage from thirteen century, located in the region of Ventimiglia, very close to France and the Mediterranean sea. Torri Superiore is nowadays a rural hostel and a hosting organization for courses. It is actually a beautiful piece of art composed of many stones and labyrinths with over 160 rooms.

A great place for a morning swimming.

As this was training for sustainability, for me it was very important to travel by land, as I usually do, in order to keep my footprint low. Despites all the restrictions and regulations due to Covid19, over 20 people from 10 different nationalities managed to come to the village. And the landscape was astonishing. I could not believe it!! From my terrace, there was a view of the valley, the town, olive orchards in terraces and the river. Yes, exactly, a river!! I was just arrived, met my roomie and after a few words exchanged, we looked at each other and decided to go for swimming! Man, why don´t we swim in the river? And yeah, we did so every morning until the end. Very refreshing!

Let´s come back to the topic!! I did not come just to swim. During the seven days, there were workshops, many tools presented, evening activities, walk & talks in nature, discussions with the local villagers, celebrations, lot of fun and gained new friends. Sometimes I am wondering why there are no such activities for youth happening in Denmark. One day, we will make it happen!

Lucilla facilitating a workshop.

I was particularly excited to listen to Lucilla, one of the local women that lived in the community since the very beginning. She was facilitating meetings teaching as skills on communication, leadership, conflict resolution and entrepreneurship.

The first day we set up the culture of the group and the space, took decisions together, taking in account everyone´s opinions, concerns and against. Further, we were introduced to a few tools like: Fishbowl, Deep Listening, Rank Privilege and World Café.

Social permaculture workshop

TRAINING COURSE “YOUNG LEADERS FOR SUSTAINABILITY” OCTOBER 13-20, 2020 – ECOVILLAGE ‘TORRI SUPERIORE’ IN ITALY

Author: Victoria Schou, landscape architect. Denmark

The medieval village of Torri Superiore is a small jewel of popular architecture located at the foothill of the Ligurian Alps, a few kilometres from the Mediterranean Sea and the French border, close to the coastal town of Ventimiglia. Originating in the thirteen century, the village is structured in three main bodies with more than 160 rooms, all connected by an intricate fabric of stairways.

Its complex structure has often been compared to a fortress or a labyrinth, perched on the mountainside. The village has been entirely restored and is now open to ecotourism, for courses, meetings and programs of environmental education, and offers an accommodation for stays and vacations. It is perfect for people interested in getting to know Ecovillage Life and looking for a holiday in a natural environment full of suggestions. This was the place, where the training for ‘Young Leaders for Sustainability’ took place.

 

Youth leaders

This training course was made for current and aspirant youth workers to learn tools to work with young people in ecovillages and sustainable projects. Participants from Italy, Spain, Denmark, Germany, Portugal, Slovenia, France, Finland, Sweden, Greece and the Netherlands came with the motivation to become young leaders and developing their leadership skills.

The first days we had an introduction to group facilitation and we explored ourselves in relation to the group and different leadership styles. We have been introduced to different tools to work with groups of young people, especially related to life in ecovillages. After having had these theoretical lessons we got to put our new skills into practice during sessions of groupwork, where the goal was to facilitate a workshop ourselves. The participants had many fun and interesting inputs on what to facilitate a workshop on and how to structure it. We split in five groups with , and the topics of the workshops ended up being: ‘The Jounrey from Fear to Love’, ‘Finding your Personal Gift’, ‘Shadow Work’, ‘Menstruation’ and ‘Lunch’. These topics were prepared as workshops for sharing knowledge and experience from one participant to the other. During one and a half day of groupwork, the workshops were discussed, prepared and refined, so that we were able to hold space for each other.

Tools for holding space

Sociocratic methods of decision making were used to create a safe room for everybody to be in. The first day measures for Covid19 was discussed in the group, where everyone could share their thoughts and feelings on the topic. Some of us were so touched in their heart by restrictions and the urgency, that we were crying and shouting. This is the truth we live in and we see it better to express our feelings, than to suppress.

Together we are going through the process of accept, holding space, letting everyone be heard. While we wear a mask, when we speak, sanitize our hands after touching and keep distance of each other. We are living together, sharing our inner thoughts and feelings, when there is no room for touching or embracing.

We have learned skills in communication, facilitation, leadership and entrepeneurship during this training for sustainability. Lucilla is the local Italian woman living in Torri Superiore, taking part of the training as a co-facilitator. She is experienced in facilitating meetings in a positive and efficient manner to serve the association or organization to the best.

 

Personal experience

Jasper Keus from Finland has expressed himself about what the training has helped him to understand:

“For me the experience was very eye-opening. I found people with willpower and knowledge for solutions to the world crisis and ways to make them more possible. I found hope. Now I can connect with people who I know have made an effort to understand each other and themselves. People who are capable of facing conflicts and accepting our differences. It’s making us capable to work together.

We lived together for a whole week. It was special to share our backgrounds and experiences while using the tools we were gaining from the training.

I’ve learned a lot with leading and facilitating a group and I will definitely put these things into practice. I’m willing to learn more and go deeper into the art of leadership.”

 

Conflict management and communication

One of the main components of the teaching was how to handle conflict and communicate in a group, but also with your peer people. Communication at the basis is about how we exchange information with each other. Our values and our personality are recognized through communication, which can happen through three channels: verbal, para-verbal and non-verbal. If there is a duality in any of these three, there will be a miscommunication.

When a conflict arises, it will cause an emotional reaction between the people involved in the conflict. These feelings will be disagreement and discomfort. The discontent is rooted in the fact that there are two arguments going against each other, which is what the conflict arises from. Two different expectations of what was needed and requested creates the disagreement. This situation can create discomfort and our feelings will be hurt, sad, angry or disappointed. As a facilitator it is important to be able to recognize and distinguish what disagreement evokes emotions and analyze the situation from a more objective point of view. In this way a resolution to the conflict can be found when both parts are heard and understood from the basis of this understanding.


Active learning

A big part of the learning was as Jasper expresses not only done in the formal training sessions, but also during lunch and at the jam after dinner. In this way we got to know each other and create new relations across Europe. I personally feel the courage and wonder of what we can do as a group. We have the common mindset that we want the change to happen through personal effort. If we all do a little in our place in the world, together we can change the world. I have learnt to step up in front of a crowd and tell the story I want to live.

BIODIVERSITY ACTION EUROPE (bae)

 

Have you signed the @BiodiversityBAE ? Call for Action yet❓ Then do so now and encourage policymakers to make sure we head down the right path towards a sustainable near-future ⌛️?️ and halt biodiversity loss today. ? Go to @BiodiversityBAE ‘s Bio to find the link to the website where you can sign!✍️? #NatureisBAE

CALL FOR ACTION:

Biodiversity is life; it is essential to the lives of current and future generations. BAE believes humankind can still learn to stop the over exploitation of nature which is leading to our own extinction. We greatly appreciate the EU’s launch of the EU Green Deal and the ways it is taking shape through the Biodiversity StrategyFarm 2 Fork strategyCircular Economy Action Plan, and others, but their success depends on their  implementation.

We want these well-written intentions to leave behind a truly sustainable legacy. We call for transformative change, not for economic deals. When? Right now! We invite you, the reader, to stand behind this call for action, and support our movement, to urge the EU to commit to what is long overdue: Empower people to live in harmony with nature.

Our Call for Action urges the European Union to fundamentally address the biodiversity crisis in three specific ways:  Engage with science and environmental agreements, Enforce existing laws and regulations, and Enable society to reshape its relationship with nature. 

ENGAGE

The European Union has failed to achieve significant progress towards its headline target of halting biodiversity loss and ecosystem services by 2020. The science is clear. With more than 1,000,000 species at risk of extinction, the world as we know it faces an existential threat. Yet, the solutions to reverse the biodiversity crisis are, and have been since long, right in front of us. We need to grasp this opportunity to address key sustainable pathways, to create a more compassionate and just society, as no prosperous future can be built on the crumbling foundation that is the biodiversity crisis. We believe the EU can make a lasting positive impact on you to engage with:

  • Best-available scientific and socioeconomic evidence on the urgent biodiversity crisis, its  impacts and mitigating measures;

  • Global and regional multilateral environmental agreements, their processes and their respective ambitious visions, goals and targets to redefine our relationship with nature.

ENFORCE

BAE welcomes the launch of the EU Green Deal, but we don’t want deals, we call for transformative change. We are aware that the oldest European legislation on biodiversity are fit for purpose, but only on paper. Thus, the EU needs to work together with Member States on efficient implementation and enforcement mechanisms. The European Commission also has to improve its active vigilance and monitoring of this implementation. So we, BAE, demand the EU to create a system of law enforcement and accountability. We need more efficiency. We call for:

  • More knowledge of Member States’ context and specific needs
    to improve implementation and sincere cooperation.

  • Member States to be responsible and follow through on environmental promises made.

  • The creation of an effective monitoring and sanctioning system.

ENABLE

We need a holistic change of the economic and financial systems to halt
biodiversity loss and restore ecosystems. By fully acknowledging the interconnection of human, planetary and economic health, we will experience a culturally and socially positive relation to nature. Next to biodiversity loss and the environmental crisis, we now face economic, social, and health crises. We call for:

  • The mobilization of financial and legislative resources for biodiversity, especially for civil societies and small businesses, along with the elimination of incentives for harmful practices.

  • The recognition of ecosystem services as the main driver of economic and human well-being. The current funding mechanisms do not meet the profitable, long term and self-sustaining investment potential of preserving biodiversity.

  • Capacity building and empowerment of women, youth, indigenous and local communities, the less fortunate and vulnerable in the decision-making process.
