Natural Change brings together small, influential groups of people to participate in a programme of wilderness workshops. The approach combines personal development, experiential learning, mentoring, reflection time, group discussion, and a deep exploration of leadership and social change processes.
The best known of these workshops were commissioned by WWF in 2008 and 2010, under the title of The Natural Change Project.
In 2012, the Natural Change Foundation was set up as a Scottish charity. Participants from the 2008 Project were instrumental in setting up the Foundation.
The Natural Change Foundation’s aims are to:
- deliver training which catalyses and supports leadership for sustainability;
- seek partnership with other organisations to work with the Natural Change approach;
- develop further understanding of the links between human and ecological health.
The Foundation delivers its aims through leadership programmes, facilitator training, supporting the ever-growing Natural Change community, and through research and publication.
