Earth Talks: Change Makers - Small steps to a big future

Mac Macarteney at Schumacher College
Wednesday, 1 November, 2017 - 20:00

With Mac Macartney

The world is changing fast. Towards what, is still unclear but whether our eyes are darkly tinted or bright with possibilities, we all long for a kinder, just, peaceful and flourishing world. ‘Small steps to a big future’ brings to life the small yet potent contributions that ordinary people can make. We may yet determine the trajectory of our human story with our collective small steps.

Mac Macartney celebrates the courage upon which each of these steps depend, especially the first. This talk picks up those who struggle from impotence and irrelevance in the face of global challenges. It lifts a veil and inspires us all to action.


Mac Macartney

Mac Macartney is an international speaker, writer and change-maker. He is also the founder of Embercombe, the centre for leadership and learning with a mission to catalyse the emergence of leaders and change-makers for a just, peaceful and sustainable future.

Over a period of twenty years Mac was mentored by a group of indigenous elders. During this training and ever since, he has attempted to bring two worlds together – an ancient world-view that emphasises relationship, interdependence, and reverence for life with the significant challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century.

Mac works with leaders across all walks of life – from business to education – inspiring them to put up their hand and join the chorus of people who are singing alive the world of our longing.  He was a faculty member of the WWF/IMD Business School ‘One Planet Leaders’ programme in Lausanne for three years and received an Honorary Doctorate in Education from Plymouth University for his work in service to community.

In 2016 Mac co-founded Liquid School, a network of experts helping organisations imagine a sustainable future. He sits on the Advisory Board for DanoneWave, the largest Public Benefit Corporation in the U.S. and is an Associate with Leaders’ Quest, collaborating on global issues with leaders across business, government and civil society.
