Learn & Experience
Futures Literacy

An immersive program to explore new ways of doing and being.

What if how you solve the problem, is the problem?

The future is imaginary and seems endless, yet we approach her through a narrow understanding of the world around us today. We try to minimize uncertainty by adding more complicated layers to every solution, which simply maintains business as usual. By expanding our capacity to imagine, we are able to broaden our perception of the world around us, to discover new ways of being and doing.

Emergence Academy is a growing community of professionals and learners. It offers unique experiences in the application of Futures Literacy, using art and nature to broaden your sensing and sense-making of the present. Together we develop a shared language on the individual and collective journey towards more resilience, openness to spontaneity and an appreciation for not-knowing.

At Emergence Academy you will learn:

• About Futures Literacy and how to apply it
• How to practice openness for Emergence and novelty
• How to respond to urgency more effectively
• To make better informed decisions
• How to improve your relationship with uncertainty
• To generate new understanding from what you think you already know
• Ways to relocate your agency in the nature we are part of and not apart from


Emergence Academy (EA) is a regenerative multi-sensory learning ecosystem, a spiral-composting programme that delivers on key transformational skills for transition towards regenerative development.

— Alex Lambie, Artist & Deep-Listening
