Escola Schumacher Brasil
Escola Schumacher Brasil é o nome que escolhemos para reconhecer um conjunto de atividades educacionais inspiradas pelo Schumacher College, Reino Unido. Estas atividades têm crescido da colaboração entre o Schumacher e muitas pessoas que tiveram vivências na escola e voltaram com uma profunda vontade de recriar este espírito no Brasil por brasileiros e para brasileiros. Nós trabalhamos com uma proximidade muito grande com o College e também outras pessoas ao redor do mundo com um desejo similar de propagar uma educação transformadora para uma vida sustentável.

Sobre o curso
Our purpose will be to encourage each other to become fuller participants in the world, ones who the great writer and teacher Hannah Arendt might recognise as ‘citzens of the public realm, venturing forth in speech and deed in bonds of trust with their fellows’. This gathering is an invitation to those whose working life requires them to be able to ‘stay awake’, responsive and creative in the midst of changing circumstances. There are lots of ways of ‘falling asleep’ – habit and familiarity prevent us noticing details, anxiety paralyses our creativity, impatience means we act impulsively, trying to stay in control means we fail to engage others... How as practitioners in the public realm (and this may involve many different kinds of work) do we fine tune our capacity to stay alive to what is happening and step into the flow of unfolding situations with courage and wisdom? This will be a chance to take part in a lively practice space to support each other in this kind of development – which is more subtle yet more fundamental than all the tools, techniques, models and frameworks that are widely available.
