In this Masterclass, Lynne will talk about the distinction between taking a position and taking a stand. She will discuss how the challenges that face us, require us to step way beyond what we know we can accomplish and commit to results greater and larger than we can accomplish alone. She will discuss critical junctures in history where enlightened and ground-breaking leaders abandoned their position and took an uncompromising stand. She will talk about how this dynamic creates a field for powerful collaboration, attracts exactly the right people and creates a container for collective wisdom and inspired guidance.
Lynne will share stories and examples from her own life, such as her work with Mother Teresa, Desmond Tutu, and the Indigenous nations of the Ecuadorian and Peruvian Amazon.
There will be opportunities for interactive processes, Q&A, sharing and discussion, and the actual process of Taking a Stand.

What is a Masterclass?
An Earth Charter Masterclass is a two-hour class facilitated by a person (together with a moderator) on a topic of their experience and interest, with a space for questions and interaction between the participants. It offers an opportunity to get some practical examples and new insights. There is no reading or preparation requirement to take part in the Masterclass, nor homework.
Our Masterclass series offers an opportunity to expand our understanding on the challenges of our time and how to address them using the Earth Charter as a reference. The Masterclass are held live on the Zoom platform. All recordings will be made available on a special platform (at a later moment and for a limited access). To receive access to all these recordings please register here. Learn more about our Masterclass Programme in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
