Community- and nature-based practices to build inner resilience and a regenerative culture in times of uncertainty

Active Hope Training | towards a Regenerative Culture 

4-day course in the Work that Reconnects 

Do you care about the world and worry where it is going?

Do you want to reconnect to yourself, others and the living world around you?

And explore practices that help you to grow an inspired resilience in these confusing times?

Come join us in the forest for a 4-day journey.


The Active Hope training is an immersive outdoor experience in which we explore our relationship to the living world as a foundation for sustainability. We use many practices from The Work That Reconnects, developed by Buddhist scholar, eco-philosopher and activist Joanna Macy. This work aims to reignite a thriving connection to life in ourselves, with others and the non-human world  by fully experiencing the beauty and wonder of nature but also fully acknowledging how we feel about loss and decay. In this training you learn various nature- and community based practices that you can take further in your personal and professional life to activate hope wherever you go.


During these 4 days we camp at ecovillage Ppauw in Wageningen from where we can explore the surrounding nature and find a home to live as a temporary community. Ecovillage Ppauw is a special place where a diverse group of people practice alternative ways of inhabiting this planet.

This course also serves as a prerequisite for the 3-weekend Facilitator training.

Practical information:


Note: dates for 2024 to be announced.


The training includes 4 full days of workshops, camping and freshly cooked organic meals. Toilet and showering facilities are eco-village style. The river is nearby for swimming. There are categories of pricing to support young people, students and less advantaged income groups. For every person that pays the support price, a discount place can be offered to somebody else. We encourage those with a good income or those who can administer this training professionally to go for the support price. We are thankful that we can make this experience possible for everyone.


If you register for a discount price, please know that this depends on the solidarity payments and your place can only be secured when these are available. We encourage you to also look for support in your personal environment to make participation possible.
