Workshop Dragon Dreaming with Dr. Felipe Simas

Dragon Dreaming

Dragon Dreaming – how to run outrageously successful projects

Consensual participatory strategic planning for projects and organisations in the field of Ecologically Sustainable Community Economic Development. Inspired in Australia’s aboriginal people, the latest scientific discoveries, Living Systems Theory, and Deep Ecology.

 

Dragon Dreaming can be defined as an approach to consensual participatory strategic planning for projects and organisations in the field of Ecologically Sustainable Community Economic Development. It enables rapid feedback that builds collective wisdom, and fosters adaptive capacity enabling individuals, groups, enterprises, communities, and government bodies to adjust creatively and positively to situations of rapid and potentially chaotic change.

It serves individuals, organisations and communities, in developing outrageously successful sustainable projects, using the powers liberated from our collective intelligence in such a way, that all participants are able to identify themselves completely with the project. Dragon Dreaming projects serve the wellbeing and flourishing of all life, strengthen the communities of which we are a part, and through personal growth, encourage the discovery that we have potentials greater than we know. During the four project stages of Dreaming, Planning, Doing and Celebration, a playful approach is used in order to access our full collective wisdom. It draws inspiration from Australia’s aboriginal people, the latest scientific discoveries, Living Systems Theory, and Deep Ecology.  The process gives high value to every stakeholder’s deepest visions and motivation, so our collective synergies can unleash their full effect.

A workshop Dragon Dreaming by Dr. Felipe Simas from Brazil, will be hosted in Wageningen by OtherWise, Boerengroep and RSO! This is part of the FEI (Farm Experience Internship) programme, and follows the kick-off event on Monday April 26th.
