Art of Hosting Training

Ecological and ecosystem scientists, social scientists, change makers and social innovators are invited into a collective inquiry.

How can we harness the power of collective intelligence practices and the knowledge of ecosystem science to restore and regenerate the planet’s natural assets now and for future generations?

3 days to explore...

What becomes possible when our social interventions are fully grounded in our knowledge of the biophysical world?

When we connect scientific explorations with collective intelligence and a diversity of world views?

What is the role of open science in social-ecological innovation?

Humaning

Humaning is acknowledging and honoring our connection to the natural world, each other, and stepping up our contribution to overall well-being.

We know that we need to restore, regenerate, and save the planet’s natural assets now and for future generations.
How can we bridge different worldviews, knowledge and practices at the social-ecological interface to take wiser decisions for the health of the ecosystems that sustain us?
Humaning is learning to be in our full human capacity.

        What is Art of Hosting?

        Art of Hosting is a set of simple yet powerful principles to design and facilitate conversations and work that taps into the whole potential of groups and individuals. It is also an international community.

        Art of Hosting takes a holistic approach to conversations so that they can lead to wiser actions.

        Art of Hosting is an open-source social practice that incorporates (but is not limited to) methods such as:

        • World Café
        • Complexity theory
        • Open Space Technology
        • Circle Practice
        • Storytelling & Story Harvest
        • 8 Breaths of Design
        • The Art of Harvesting ​

        Much of the art and power of the Art of Hosting approach comes not from any individual method but learning to blend and tailor a combination of methods to serve the need and purpose of the unique context a practitioner is working with, using an understanding of underlying patterns of process design.

        Ecological Field Station

        This training will take place at the Ecological field Station of the Université de Montréal. It is a vast territory with pristine lakes protected since the 1960s.
        We will be able to swim, canoe, hike, hang in a hammock, play badminton, soccer etc.
        There is simple onsite lodging for 50 people in two pavillons (2 persons per room).
