To ensure local relevance of educational content & tools, EW partners with local organizations and social entrepreneurs to co-develop and facilitate each program. The Latest
In Spring 2017, bringing these tools for locally-led resilience to communities devastated by Nepal's 2015 earthquake, EW launched its first 'Catalyst Action Training (CAT) ', a four day intensive with 22 young women leaders, led by two lead local trainers and supported by several renowned change agents (guest Voices).
Throughout the course, guest change agents inspired catalysts with achievements in women's rights (abolishment of Chhaupadi which keeps menstruating women from school), the banning of plastic bags (a major pollution issue for Kathmandu), entrepreneurship, cultivation of livelihoods and careers through art, and more.
As a catalyst for collaboration EW welcomes sustainable and regenerative education leaders to bring 7SS Basic Training Curriculum to grassroots and formal academic settings alike.
As diverse groups and communities learn 7SS, we build a global learning community. With a shared language and philosophy of using local assets first, participants are better able to exchange ideas, share skills, tools, and empathize with diverse partners at home and abroad.
