We train teachers, trainers, corporate executives and practitioners to think critically about global complexity and how to navigate and develop solution orientated approaches.
We train researchers, project managers and practitioners in participatory approaches to research , planning and management and we train geologists, geoscientists and engineers about social performance and social accessibility
