Caroline Walker

After eight years working in rural South India on village health and development projects, Caroline returned to the UK in 1987 to work at the Schumacher-inspired Small School in Hartland, Devon, where she taught for 14 years. Her MSc dissertation, As if size mattered: education for sustainability and the human scale approach was published by South Bank University in the collection, Journeys around education for sustainability (2008).  For some years she worked for a regional regeneration programme, promoting a sustainable future for Devon market towns.  A facilitator at Schumacher College since 2002, she is also a freelance writer, researcher and serial volunteer with local charities. In 2020 she published Love Made Visible: The Life and Work of Dora Scarlett, the biography of a remarkable woman whose clinic provided free health care in a remote area of Tamil Nadu for over forty years.

“For me facilitation at Schumacher College is a wonderful opportunity to meet people from all over the world, and to work with participants and tutors to create a truly transformative learning experience. it’s different every single time, but always inspiring.”
