Change The Dream Symposia

Change the Dream is a symposium developed originally by the Pachamama alliance in the US and taken up by 'Be the Change' in the UK.  It has a one day format.  Its purpose is to bring together the agendas of ecological sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment and its origins lie with the Achuar people from the Ecuadorean Amazon who have asked people in the North to change our dream because otherwise we are all in big trouble !
In Ireland, Change the Dream symposia are being offered by four Sisters of Mercy (their September programme is 6 September - Dun Laoghaire, 13 September Carlow, 20 September Nenagh and 27 September in Naas.  For further details and bookings contact Maeve on 045 876 784).
Plans are well advanced to offer facilitator training for the symposium to people in Ireland.  This might be a particularly good fit for people involved in transition initiatives, as another outreach format to add to all the others.  Dates are still to be confirmed and further details will be sent out as soon as they are available.  If you would like further information, please contact Chris Chapman at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Where on Earth are we going?

And what can we do about it?

Through dynamic group interactions, leading edge information, and inspiring multimedia, participants of this one-day event are inspired to reconnect with their deep concern for our world, and are empowered to make a difference.

Designed with the collaboration of some of the finest scientific, indigenous and activist minds in the world, the Symposium explores the current state of our planet from a new perspective, and connects participants with a powerful global movement to reclaim our future.

The Symposium is a profound inquiry into how we might realise a bold vision: an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, and socially just human presence on Earth. If you are ready to explore what this vision means for you, and for the opportunity to create an inspiring future, we invite you to attend.

“I thought I already knew a lot about all this, but the Symposium really blew me away. I went for some networking, and came away also better informed, inspired, enthused and equipped to share that enthusiasm.”  – JR, Brighton
