How can we build the capacity and the skills to thrive in a rapidly changing world? How can we unleash the power of collaboration to create a better society?

We believe positive change comes from engaged citizens and collaborative action. And we have seen how a strong purpose – combined with a well-designed process – can have real impact. Systemic change needs diverse perspectives and innovators who have learnt to ‘host‘ groups and spaces in an authentic way. Yet many of us wonder what role we can play in societal change and how we can collaborate effectively across sectors.

That is why we want to introduce you to the Art of Hosting, an approach to leadership that scales up from the personal to the systemic using personal practice, dialogue, facilitation, and the co-creation of innovation to address complex challenges.

In this three-day training, which takes place at Impact Hub Amsterdam, we will be sharing a decade of Art of Hosting practice and Impact Hub expertise in facilitating change makers who collectively contribute to a more just and sustainable world.
