About this event

In 1991 Dartington pioneered ecological education by establishing Schumacher College – and thus addressed the pertinent issues of the present day at a time when ideas around sustainability were in their infancy.

We are coming together thirty years later to celebrate the great ideas of the regenerative economy, the earth as a living organism and recognition of the intrinsic values of nature.

Satish Kumar, the founder and Dr Pavel Cenkl, head of Schumacher College, will launch a 30th anniversary commemorative book: ‘Transformative Learning – Reflections on 30 years of head, heart and hands at Schumacher College’.

We’ll also be joined by guest Matt Harvey (“not only funny but tender and true” – The Guardian), a Dartmoor-based poet who has also contributed to the book will inspire the audience with his humour and insight and poetic contribution. A-capella choir Glorious Chorus will also join us to perform a full set of uplifting and original choral music.

Books will be available to buy and there will be time to have a mingle and a drink with guest speakers, contributors to the book, and Schumacher College staff.

“(Glorious Chorus are) exceptional! Plenty of heartfelt soul to leave the crowd enraptured, and calling for more” – Dan Faberoff, Stage Manager, Glastonbury Festival
