“Do not try to ... [teach] a great many things. Awaken people's
curiosity. It is enough to open minds; do not overload them. Put
there just a spark. If there is some good inflammable stuff, it will
surely set fire.”
Creativity in Sustainability – inspiring action – events, education and training for communities, businesses and schools.
Cinnabar eco-creative is a new Dorset based consultancy that focuses on creative approaches to raising awareness of sustainability and ecology. In doing so it aims to inspire others to seek changes that benefit the individual, the community or organisation, and the planet.
Cinnabar is a service which breaks the mould, fusing sustainability and ecology with creativity and art providing education, training and events that are memorable, enjoyable and enlightening. People are often put off education for sustainable development due to the bewildering issues involved, and the technical nature of the subject. Cinnabar sets out to change that by providing ‘custom-made’ events and training that are based on participation and action learning.
Cinnabar is also social; it is about people getting together and sharing knowledge and enthusiasm. It is about developing awareness, new ‘ways of seeing,’ inventiveness and creative skills ... and it is about our ever evolving relationship with nature, and its stewardship.
Cinnabar is small but works with a number of associates, calling in outside skills when required, and developing partnerships with other organisations and businesses. Contact Cinnabar to discuss and develop your ideas at a free consultation.
