Transformational Action

Since 2012 we have run over 50 projects in more than 100 localities in over 15 countries in Europe, the Middle East and the Arctic. Below are some illustrative examples. We've directly worked with c.6000 individuals (3000+ young people) and over 650 organisations. Indirectly we've reached a further 25,000 people in 110 countries.
Our current strategic focus is on sustainable transitions through greening the environmental impact of technology, at scale.

Theatre as Community Catalyst

Newport, Wales

A powerful, evidence-based play combining mime and storytelling designed for non-cognitive impact, applied as a catalyst for individual empowerment and community mobilisation in a poor neighbourhood of Newport, Wales.

In the course of 3 weeks the process gave birth to a peer education project with older youth, 3 separate community film projects, and networks and friendships across pre-existing barriers. Several individuals referred to profound and lasting personal impact. These processes were sustained well after the end of the intervention

Suicide Prevention Through Resilience Education

Nuuk, Greenland

A 2 year, peer-education programme in the suicide capital of the world. Combining an academic literature review with in-depth action research and co-design with Greenlandic/Inuit young people, teachers, elders and agencies, together we developed a wide ranging resilience intervention.

This included a peer education programme outside school, in-school workshops and resilience classes delivered by trained youth facilitators, and media campaigns. The impact was wide ranging and deep, and earned praise from the President of Greenland.
