Duncan is leading a workshop in October for the Bedford Fellowship, a group of senior and visionary educationalists on how we can develop #useful and kind as a way of being and doing in schools as we test the feasibility of launching a #u&k Mark for schools in 2019
Flourish Wellbeing Festival
Duncan has been invited to lead a workshop at the Flourish Wellbeing Festival on 11th November.
This year we have had some real prosocial usefulandkind leaders sharing ideas, lives and projects.
One participant recently said 'I rarely get the opportunity to stop and reflect about how to make the world better with like-minded people - thank you'
We have heard from Laura Darrall (founder of It Affects Me, Chi-Chi Nwanoku (founder of Chineke) and Peter Tatchell the lifetime campaigner.
Here are some tips from these seminars:
1 Tell those whom you love that you do - today listen to people who know more than you
2 Decide what you can do in your personal life to model being #usefulandkind
3 Write to thank the people who have helped you
4 Send a small note or gift to someone you disagree with who has helped you to think in a different way
5 Don't be overwhelmed by how much there is to do try one of the following:
read a book or give one away
join Amnesty's letter writing campaign
sign up to something you are passionate about
stop and listen
enjoy the natural world - do what you can to preserve it
Our networking seminars are a great way to meet others who are trying to make the world a better place. Learn form them and get support and encouragement.
We will be planning more - tell us what you would like.
