Join us April 9 for a "Leading Wellbeing" Event

Leading Wellbeing: from theory to practice is just one month away! We look forward to reconnecting during the weekend of April 9th and 10th and feeding what was kindled on the shores of Windermere last July.

Open Space Event
At our open space event, anyone can host a session, or just come along and enjoy what is on offer from 930 to 530! Sessions already on offer include:

Leadership for change: who, me? with Charles Ainger, Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)
Sustainable money with Prof. Jem Bendell, IFLAS (University of Cumbria) and Matthew Slater (Global Ecovillage Network)
Yoga dance with Sarah Pike
Wellbeing in the workplace with Richard Little (Impact International)
Renewable energy in Cumbria with Mark Cropper (Ellergreen Hydro)
Music in your nature with Amy Boud
Poetry & seeing, who’s eyes are you looking through? with Georgia Wingfield-Hayes, Jamie McPhee & Nigel Dykes (University of Cumbria)

Places are limited and booking is essential.

The Party!
In the evening we will gather at Ambleside Parish Centre at 6.00, for a delicious dinner all from locally sourced, seasonal food from the fabulous Nick’s Kitchen. Then there will be live music from Don’t Tell Suzy and Uncle Carbunkle, who will get us all dancing with their funky blues vibe!

Open Space £20
Evening party £15
Or both for just £25!

Booking is essential, so please buy a ticket now.

Many participants will be staying on to go hiking or museum-visiting together on the Sunday 10th April, so please arrange your weekend to allow for you to join that if you so wish (weather very unpredictable). Arrangements will be self-organised and discussed on the Saturday. Please arrange your own accommodation. If you would like advice on accommodation please email Also tell Martin if you are arriving on the Friday night, as we may be able to connect you with others.

You can extend this invite to friends and colleagues who you would like to connect with the spirit of Leading Wellbeing. You can use our Facebook group to tell people you are coming and invite others

Unfortunately no children’s programme is offered for this smaller gathering. As the next full Leading Wellbeing Research Festival will be next year, joining us next month is a great way to stay engaged.

To recap:
Date 9th April, 2016
Open Space: 9.30 - 17.30 at the University of Cumbria, Charlotte Mason Building, Ambleside Campus, off Low Nook lane, Ambleside, Cumbria.
Evening party: 18.00 - Midnight at the Parish Centre, Vicarage Road, Ambleside (food at 19.00)

If you would like to study leadership development in the way we explored it at the Festival, have a look at our new MA in Sustainable Leadership Development and do ask if you have questions.

We look forward to seeing you in Ambleside.
