Schumacher College Build International Network For Change

schumacher college

Schumacher College is like a University for Spiritual Activists. The students learn from world class professors who are each ploughing a field that is connected to a network of other fields that make up a farm that connects to other farms. All organic of course.

Schumacher College offers ecology-centred masters programmes and short courses attracting people from over 90 different countries, of all ages and backgrounds. They even offer a Masters in holistic science. The students forge firm friendships during the Schumacher experience. Much of the learning happens through conversations with each other and the actual living arrangement itself. It is an organic community, set in the lush hills of Devon on the Dartington Estate, that is a heaven on earth.

To celebrate their 25th year, Schumacher College have built a virtual campus to connect people with thought-leaders, activists and inspirational teachers around the world.

In order to fund it, they tapped into their most valuable asset – their database of contacts! Using a crowdfunding platform they set their target to raise the 25K in 25 days.

Fortunately they opted not to go it alone. They asked Green Lane Films to produce the video to realise their vision. It was a collaboration, choosing the right filming locations and the right people to be in it. They made sure to include all the familiar faces that potential donors would already know and love. Each were given a line from the script and spoke it to camera. Not everyone was a polished, confident voice but that just added to the charm. It is authentic with a human touch, not unlike the college itself.
