OUR APPROACH

Cultural ecologist David Abram writes of an environmental ethic which leads us to respect not only the lives of our fellow humans but also the life and well-being of the rest of nature. Global Generation offers a unique programme of hands-on doing combined with artful reflection, which enables businesses to bring this ethic alive in the heart of the city and at our campsite on Pertwood Organic Farm. Participants work alongside each other and young people to leave a positive impact on the planet and to grow new ways of connecting and giving back within their organisations and the communities in which they operate.

"To join the dots from the big bang it’s just huge, isn't it? I don’t think we realise we are part of something bigger, we all are essentially one... Up until now it has been all about convenience for me, but now I want to find a way to give back." - Mitchell, Team Leader, Kier Construction

WHO WE'VE
WORKED WITH

 

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Some team-building is really geared toward a corporate objective or immediate professional goal, but lacks a deeper personal connection or takeaway. Global Generation’s enthusiasm and passion really shine here and brings it all together. I came away thinking that companies and charities can cooperate if there is that more philosophical level of communication, and people draw a deeper connection than simply “team building” to “boost productivity and morale” - much of that is forgotten once the session is over. With the Skip Garden experience I came away thinking about what I learned long after, and I suspect that others who go through the workshop would feel the same too.

How is it that a hard-core construction company has come to this, sitting around in a circle speaking about values? This goes way beyond just health and safety. It feels like we are standing in an unexpected future for construction. We have never been explicit about values but you have shown how they are the foundation for real change.
