About Send Gina to the UnSchool of Disruptive Design
Project 2016-12-01 03:17:11 UTC
Good humans of this universe!
I’ve had the amazing opportunity to join the seven-day UnSchool Christchurch Fellowship. Think 16 amazing humans from New Zealand and beyond who share and learn everything required for systemic social change!
UnSchools describe themselves as an ‘an experimental knowledge lab for social change’. If you’ve hung out with me recently, you might know that’s my jam! Whether it’s with Lifehack or Enspiral, working out how to make good things happen faster, more rigorously and more (emotionally and financially) sustainable has been the biggest experiment arch over the last few years. And now I’m keen to get together with some other amazing humans to pick up some new skills and tools, share notes and make some awesome connections with other people in this space.
It’s all about systems, sustainability and design. What a dream boat!
I’ve been lucky to have been granted a 50% scholarship… which leaves me with another 1250USD to cough up (approx NZD1700). My plan is to raise some within the Enpiral network through a process called Cobudget (you can read more about it here if you’re really interested). And for all the folks who don’t have the ability to contribute through Cobudget, there’s a PledgeMe! And obviously here, you can get some rewards!
It means that sending me to UnSchool will be truly a community effort. I plan on multiplying that effort by applying my learnings from this in the Aotearoa context and continuing my work on some of our wicked problems.
$10 - sending you good wishes and digital high fives, and a shout out in the blog posts.
$25 - a digital version of a quote captured through my amateur-but improving-hand-drawn-type skills
$35 - a physical quote captured through my amateur-but-improving-hand-drawn-type skills
$50 - some of my homemade version of Ottolenghi’s tahini cookies (The best. Contains sugar, dairy and wheat.)
$75 - homemade Dukkah (Delicious spice mix great for dipping and salads. Contains nuts)
$100 - a session with you on the social change you’re working on, and feedback from my learnings at UnSchool.
All of you can benefit from some sweet blogs that I’ll write up to capture some of the experience and learnings. I’ll also be hosting a group gathering kanohi ki te kanohi (digital or in analogue life) where I’ll share my takeaways (intellectual, not food-based) with whoever is interested—in particular with a view to working out how anything learnt applies to the New Zealand context and landscape.
(And, if you can’t pledge, but you have something I could offer as a reward, let me know. All help super appreciated).
