Regenerative Culture Course at Camp Altiplano
20-27 September 2023
The concept of regenerative culture acknowledges that restoration of degraded landscapes is not only a physical or technical concern, but also deeply cultural. During this one week experience we will talk about soil, water and biodiversity, while exploring the cultural dimension of sustainability.
Camp Altiplano’s team will share with you insights on the lessons learned in this semi-arid landscape over more than 5 years. You will learn about rainwater harvesting, ground cover management, and the challenges of combining agricultural and natural landscapes, while assisting on practical workshops on compost making and beekeeping.
Together we will explore the cultural dimension of sustainability. What is needed alongside technical solutions to accomplish an integral shift in our cultural attitude towards food production and nature? How can you find empowerment to be an inspired actor for ecosystem restoration? What does a regenerative culture look like and what could this mean for your own life?
Guided by Lian Kasper, we will work with methods from the work that reconnects by Joanna Macy to investigate our own worldview and ask exactly this question. Along the way we will touch personal topics like ‘how does the state of the world touch me’ and ‘how could this help empower my engagement with sustainability’ as well as cultural ones like ‘what does a regenerative society look like’ and ‘how do we get there’.
You will be staying at Camp Altiplano, experiencing life in nature at its fullest, living completely off-grid with an inspiring and like minded group of people. The course includes 3 organic and vegetarian meals per day, accommodation, and transportation on farm.
The course is organized by Lian Kasper and Camp Altiplano. Visit www.kalapa.nu for more information on Lian and the work that reconnects.
The course program is dedicated 50% to ecosystem restoration sessions and 50% to the exploration of regenerative culture and our connection to nature. Practical sessions are about 10% of the program. If you like to get your hands dirty and want to participate in more practical activities, you are welcome to stay with us for a few days or weeks after the course. To do so, get in touch with us
