Climate Change Cohort Kicking Off, Slated for Fall 2015 Launch

The Institute will soon begin accepting applications for the WE-CAN program in Gaian Leadership and Climate Resilience. Please contact the Institute for application materials.

The Institute for Earth Regenerative Studies develops programs at the convergence of creativity, cultural and ecological restoration, and the living wisdom traditions. We are dedicated to nurturing women as leaders, facilitators, and healers through embodied, integrated action. WE-CAN is a project of the Institute for Earth Regenerative Studies. Supported by a training fellowship from the EE Capacity, Civic Ecology Lab, the North American Association of Environmental Education, and the EPA, we are designing and unfolding the first year-long program in community climate resilience.

The WE-CAN Program year offers a dynamic, interactive learning and action context for community-based climate change resilience projects. Whether you are interested in increasing community-based organic gardening or food forests, want to bootstrap a public-benefit enterprise in transition skills, or want to increase community involvement through large puppetry or murals, We nurture Gaian thriving, in learners' growing vision, along multi-disciplinary dimensions. Our mentor match program is excellent. 

Circles of Mentors and Acceleration

  • Meet regularly with the cohort with guest presenters and demonstrations
  • Meet monthly with your project mentor
  • Meet monthly with the entire circle of action learners and mentors
  • Custom design your project inside a circle of support
  • Field trips and site visits as well as intensives for immersive learning
Mentoring one-on-one and the Mentor learning circle bridges generations of successive waves of contribution, talent, and creativity. All this with the intention of creating planetary thrivability.

More information is available at the WE-CAN website. Application materials will be published later in March and will be due by May 15, 2015.
