Idea pitch

What makes us happy in life is feeling connected. That being our relatives, friends, humanity or the Nature. Or why not all of them?
What prevents this to happen is that we don't know how to do it.

My proposal is to perform a track of practical workshops for:
* applying empathy in our daily communication
* using the methods of Sociocracy when working together
* revitalizing a piece of land by implementing an actual Permaculture design on it

Where will your idea take place?

Workshops to be facilitated at appropriate locations in Europe.

Why does Europe need your idea?

Democracy for me is has two very important pillars - communication and decentralization. Applying modern psychology (and simple wisdom) in our daily communication as well knowing more about what nature can actually give us would increase our ability to apply democracy throughout Europe.

What is your impact?

There will be a network of people that can work together and help each other to create a happier creative life around ourselves. And pass the knowledge and experience to more and more people around us.

How do you get there?

1. Involve top-notch subject matter experts.
2. Facilitate 3 or 4 workshops on applying empathy (see Carl Rogers) and sociocracy throughout Europe.
3. By applying the learned skills, implement together a Permaculture design on a piece of land.

By this project we connect the theoretical with the practical knowledge. This will noticeably change how we perceive ourselves and the world. Together we can work together in the future as well.

What is your story?

I've taken part in projects and alternative way of living experiments. My experience and my observations on other projects showed me that we are facing largely the same kind of issues. I have seen how much helpful empathy, sociocracy and permaculture are so I want to master them and raise awareness.

Who are you doing it for?

This is suitable for everybody that has interests in the listed topics and has the desire to learn. It would be especially useful for young people to become more conscious about the ways they interact with the world around them.

What do you need from the Advocate Europe community?

Which part of project is most important? Most interesting? Where should the workshops take place? Do you want to be part of the project team?
