How To Change The World

How To Change The World

It is normal to harbour a wish to lead a meaningful life which has a beneficial impact on those around us. However grand it might sound, wanting to 'change the world' is a proper and mature ambition.

However, by a dispiriting law of inertia, we tend to remain passive, assuming that change cannot take place, or that we are not really the ones to instigate it. This cannot in reality be true; there are simply too many examples of everyday initiative to the contrary.

Much has to do with learning where our own particular passion may lie - and how we might marry it to the needs of the world.

In this class, we examine the psychological, cultural and social resistances we may encounter as we look to make a change. The class aims to provide inspiration, a healthy dose of realism, and the practical tools to make a realistic difference.

ABOUT CORE CLASSES

Our classes have been designed to give useful insights around the big themes in life. You’ll be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, and provided with a space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other curious, open-minded individuals.

These sessions are designed by experts and taught by members of our faculty. They include a mix of lecture, conversation and group activity.  Optional homework is provided for those interested in further study.

Testimonials

The course last night was excellent. I love the way that the course title only touches the surface of what actually takes place in the group sessions. I was worried that the 'Change the World' class would be a little too worthy for my liking but it actually opened my mind to a number of ways that differences can be made from the obvious to the subtle and, as usual, the group was really stimulating.
