In the face of planetary crisis, the younger generations are leading the way integrating spirituality with activism and the need for systemic change.  Generation Y and Z are showing impressive natural leadership and speaking hard truths with conviction where their elders have failed.   Our passionate young leaders will lead your community through the basics of what is new and different, inspiring young people to greater heights and educating elders about important differences in generational worldviews. 

There are important difference between the generations in how we live and understand spirituality.  Natural leadership, sacred activism, a passion for Earth, multifaceted identities, a different relationship with tradition, and a distaste for hiearchy are just a few of the ways it manifests.  It is energising for young people to see their place in a much bigger global movement, and it is essential for elders to understand and respect generational differences.  Based partly on the book Generation Y, Spirituality and Social Change, this lively, fun workshop or talk is a breath of fresh air that will bring you hope and a new vision.

This workshop can include:

  • Stories and input from young emerging leaders making a difference
  • Mapping differences in worldview and behaviour
  • Exploring hierarchy vs organic self-organising
  • Climate and ecology:  young people as a global movement for change
  • For young people:  discern your vision/find your tribe
  • For elders:  what young people need from you
  • Intergenerational reconciliation circles
  • A shared vision for the future.

This content can be tailored for a range of different contexts, in the form of a talk or workshop, for:

  • young activists wanting a blast of inspiration or to take the next step in their leadership
  • faith communities and spiritual groups needing to understand differences in generational worldview
  • NGOs, organisations and businesses seeking to better support their younger talent
  • any community experiencing intergenerational tensions
  • reconciliation circles can also be designed to free up energy and resources in a stuck system.

The workshop can be entirely youth-led by our inspiring team of Associate Fellows, or can be held by an intergenerational duo.
