Sea-Change Makers

Sea-Change Makers is an ocean-themed leadership program aimed at developing qualities and capacities for generating positive transformation at the individual and societal level.

EarthCollective is supporting the Sea-Change Project in developing experiential learning journeys that immerse participants in story of the birth of humanity, and the ancient relationship we all have with the sea. Together, we are offering the following innovative integral leadership programs:

Sea-Change Makers

Sea-Change Makers is an extended (1-3 week) human origins and oceans-themed leadership program aimed at developing qualities and capacities for generating positive transformation at the individual and societal level. This customised course is run by Dr. Matthew Zylstra, and facilitated by Craig Foster and the Sea-Change team. Driven by the Sea-Change philosophy, this learning journey explores human-nature relationships through depth of experience and diverse ways of knowing. It recognises that humans are wired for connection, creativity and co-operation and draws on both our primal blueprint and modern science to engage participants with innovative ideas, practices and regenerative change processes that revitalise bonds with nature, people, community and self.  Sea-Change Makers is recommended for groups and organizations across private, (non-)governmental, and education sectors (e.g. college and university students). It facilitates team-building, health and wellbeing, culture design, and field-based learning (e.g. in conservation, complexity and sustainability).

Sea-Change Makers+

Sea-Change Makers+ (“plus”) adds inland wilderness experiences to the Sea-Change Makers program. Upon completing Sea-Change Makers, participants can amplify their rewilding and reflection by stepping into one of several spectacular areas in South Africa. Locations include: the Baviaanskloof, Cederberg Wilderness Area, iMfolozi Game Reserve, uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park, and the Wild Coast. These journeys are facilitated by highly experienced wilderness guides and allow for deeper exploration and connection with quintessential African landscapes. This course is run by Dr. Matthew Zylstra, and facilitated by Craig Foster and the Sea-Change team.
