Going a little wild on online workshops in February & March 24

For the month of February-May I have planned to go a little wild on online workshops. Can you believe that NOBODY (nobody on payment terms haha) registered for the course “From Passive to Active Sustainability”? I will interrogate later why this was the case, maybe the topic is too progressive (I hope not), maybe the adjustment of the course-price too high, maybe, maybe. As a result of such, I will be offering the single modules of the course individually as “crash-course” – noting that the beauty of co-learning and additional reading lists, etc. will be omitted, ergo the learning/unlearning will be limited, BUT I really want to offer the content and the space to interrogate (more on the individual online classes below with registration links).


Here is what I have to offer and what I will be doing the next weeks (you can also and directly check my Eventbrite-page):
