The first RESTORE Training School is going to take place in Lancaster, UK between 14th and 17th November 2017. We have 30+ trainees attending, representing a great spectrum of sustainability disciplines, experience and EU countries. We have brilliant international trainers and guest lecturers. In addition, we will be joined by 12 RESTORE core group members. It’s going to be a great event and one not to miss.
Focusing on Restorative Sustainability, Biophilia, and Sustainability Education, in four days trainees will gain a deep understanding of Restorative Sustainability and the key topics from RESTORE working groups. Training School trainees (students, educators, and practitioners) will participate in multiple introduction seminars, action learning, team and individual presentations, study tours, and much more.
- Introduction to Regenerative Sustainability and the work of RESTORE Working Groups.
- Guest lectures including Digital Approaches for Regenerative Design, Mindfulness for Sustainability and more.
- Regenerative Sustainability Education with Class Of Your Own.
- Biophilic Design Sessions. We are delighted to have some of the world’s leading experts on biophilic design join us for a powerful biophilic design afternoon of lectures, workshops and webinars.
- Regenerative Sustainability Tours (Brockholes BREEAM Outstanding and Cuerdon Valley Park, Living Building Challenge Project).
- Planting trees at the LBC Project (in part to offset carbon from travel, but also to provide locally available Larch timber for any future cladding replacement of the Visitor Centre).
The Training School will operate as a train the trainer course; equipping delegates with techniques and knowledge to run restorative sustainability education modules within their own institute and networks. The RESTORE Training School has been approved by ILFI (International Living Future Institute) for 20 LFA (Living Future Accredited) professional CEU hours.
