Welcome to Community Catalyst Learning Programs! We hope it can enrich your individual, organisational or community learning experience.
All materials have been created thanks to many contributions from people involved in processes of social change. The biggest thanksgiving is for nature, source of life and inspiration.
Have fun and consider the activities proposed as an invitation to adopt and adapt to best answer your needs and your context. Learning Programs can be individual and/or collective, in physical or online spaces, using printed or online materials.
To make the best out of the experience, consider preparing the learning space with love, care, snacks and coloured markers; setting a time or a schedule for the learning experience; keep track of the process.
Meet Cataly the Caterpillar, an adventurous tale as a source of inspiration. Start the journey from the heart, where fairy tales wish us to be.
