The Steps Collective is a group committed to sharing provocations which get people thinking, doing and making in the regenerative space. Taking the action which works for you is easier when you see and hear how others started.
Our four Facilitating Officers at the start are Dr. Rob Phillips, Lizzie Shupak, Andy Thornton, and John V Willshire. Our intention is that this evolves however necessary.
We are helping people take their own first steps towards a regenerative future, not as experts or professionals but as parents, neighbours, colleagues and citizens.
Hearing from others on their own first steps becomes a vital part of this. We want to hear from people in the early stages of ideas and initiatives, alive to the unfolding experience around them, rather than a post-rationalised, mythic version of an older history. There is no right and wrong, just right now.
We are committing to hosting & recording one sharing session each month during 2024. An hour long, with 3 or 4 speakers and discussion afterwards.
The brief to speakers is this: Show The Easy Place to Start (STEPS).
In turn, as the story of these efforts is in its early stages, the group in turn can usefully suggest ideas, directions and opportunities to shape the next steps of this work.
Between the four of us, we will distribute responsibility for setting up the space to hold these hybrid sessions in-person and online, facilitate conversations, bring together future speakers and invite participants.
