Thank you again to everyone who participated in yesterday’s free facilitation webinar A Compassionate Civilization: The Urgency of Sustainable Development and Mindful Activism’, and for the feedback shared on twitter!
In this session we explored the role of facilitation in sustainable development and ‘mindful activism’ for social change. I was joined by Robertson Work, author of the 2017 book of the same name, and again by Sunny Walker CPF CTF of the Virtual Facilitation Collaborative.
Rob shared something of how his experience of facilitation and ICA’s Technology of Participation influenced his thinking, and the format of the book, and how he sees the role of facilitation in realising a Compassionate Civilization. We invited you to share some of your own experience of facilitation for social change, and to respond with us to questions that are raised.
Session materials & additional resources shared include:
- the original high resolution, interactive session recording in Adobe Connect (a YouTube version is below)
- a chat transcript (pdf) from the session
- Rob’s presentation slides (pdf) from the session
- Virtual group study sessions on each chapter of the book hosted by Sunny and others of the Virtual Facilitation Collaborative.
Thank you Robertson, Martin and Sunny for a fruitful webinar. Here are some of my take away sketchnotes. Looking forward to the next webinar. pic.twitter.com/jyUhAChO3l

Was great to dive deep into Sustainable Development and Mindful Activism with @robertsonwork on @martingilbraith webinar. Armed with some new insights to sustain my activism work and help other activists from burning out but also be more effective. pic.twitter.com/qchYW9kSKK

Was a very interesting insight into a highly experienced #facilitator and work in social activities – worth exploring further! https://t.co/lHbhqkGWdw
