Regenerating Community Leadership


In the summer of 2021 NewStories is launching an in depth learning program for leaders whose work is to regenerate community. Over the last decade, NewStories has worked with grassroots community leaders throughout Cascadia, the Pacific Northwest, across North America and throughout the world. We understand that the work needed now is at four scales -personal, local, bioregional, transregional.

We are:

  • Creating a new virtual infrastructure where those called to leading regenerative change in their communities and organizations can connect with each other to learn and to support each other in as they reimagine and leap into work to create transformative change.
  • We will support leaders to learn with and from each other and from outside provocateurs, wisdom keepers and specialists. It will combine virtual learning sessions, coaching and action groups where participants are applying what they are learning in real time. After the first cohort we will pause, reimagine and continue with a second cohort.
  • We will offer longer in depth learning sessions around particular topics and themes based on the needs of the cohort and the communities they serve. The first of these will be a three month virtual course on bringing anti-racism and diversity, equity and inclusion into the middle of regenerating community work.
