“Schumacher College is a very beautiful, holistic place. The keys to sustainability are here!”

“I can see, back within my working environment, how worthwhile the course has been for me. I can tell with certainty that things have changed in the longer term. I think different about my role in work and in the organisation. I have begun to use course material directly in work and meetings. This is because of the course and because of the discussions I’ve had with the participants, with the teacher, facilitator and the people at Schumacher College.”

“I left Schumacher with the certainty that I had experienced more than a course. I made a journey within myself. Schumacher College was the living proof that a more sustainable and conscious living is possible, not only in the future, but here and now.”
