Climate and the Art of Storytelling

Event Details

Peterson will take in the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education Professionals Retreat.

Experience the artful, playful, outrageously funny, and deeply moving storytelling craft of Peterson Toscano. Connecting contemporary issues to his own bizarre personal experiences, literature, science, and even the odd Bible story, Peterson takes his audience on an off-beat mental mind trip.  A shapeshifter, he transforms right before your eyes into a whole cast of comic characters who explore the serious worlds of gender, sexuality, privilege, religion, climate change, and environmental justice.

Participants will be immersed with 40-50 of your peers for three full days dedicated to advancing your vision, energy, capabilities and support system as a sustainability change agent. This year’s focus is about tapping into your source, building your skills and strengthening your community. You’ll experience:

  • the spaciousness to reflect on your path, purpose, style and methods to harvest powerful personal insights and unlock new reserves of energy.
  • deep discussions and fun exchanges with your peers to learn about a wide range of emerging ideas.
  • building targeted skills in facilitation, organizational design, idea flow, and senior leadership engagement.

In addition, this year we will explore important trends in the higher education and how to position sustainability as a solution driver for key stress points across the sector (enrollment, funding, affordability, relevance to employers etc.).
