Re-Imagination – Session 1

Our belief in the innate creativity, imagination and ingenuity of the human mind is absolute. These are the very qualities that created civilization. Those skills have not been lost, though in vulnerable communities they can be overwhelmed by history and circumstance. Their reemergence is a matter of establishing the confidence of the individuals and communities to believe in their own inherent and instinctive abilities. We work to re imagine ourselves as part of a diverse global sets of cultures, rather than being restricted to a singular, historical point of view.

Entry to Entrepreneurship – Session 2

Once you rediscover the positive assets and attributes you have always possessed, the positive outcomes are limited only by your imagination. One of the most important is to develop your own, personal economic resource set. Our partners are global experts in academia, business development, entrepreneurship, and finance. We work together towards the goal of sustainable economic development at the local, national, and international level; nurturing the growth of adaptive and evolving economic self-sufficiency that respects traditional values.

Creative Problem Solving Teams

Creative problem solving teams are capable of providing imaginative, holistic and compelling solutions. These teams are established with and by our participants, as they progress through our programming. They collaborate with other individuals and teams and with diverse private and public organizations, academia, and corporations large and small. They also learn to train other teams and individuals, becoming assets to their communities.

We are exploring the issues of Sustainability and Human Rights at Santa Fe Community College. We look at examples of ancient and modern methods of sustainable innovation, while we examine strategies to foster these skills, create an flexible and inspired work culture and space, and explore ways to navigate the obstacles that discourage free-thinking.

The exercise is to create a new community without relying on any preexisting conditions. Our collaborative partners are many and diverse and include experts on revitalizing urban communities, Native American scholars, Inuit partners in Quebec, water and land experts, community organizers and others.

Our objectives are to: develop tools and frameworks to plan and implement, develop change, project and risk management skills, exploring problem solving models (lean, agile, etc.), explore ancient and modern sustainable practices & innovations, develop tools and frameworks to plan and implement ideas, create networking and experience opportunities with peers and field experts, develop empathy, awareness, multiculturalism and inclusion through digital collaboration with other communities and groups, nationally and internationally.
