Tailor-made mobility

Funding is available for individuals and/or groups of participants based in the European Union

This call for proposals supports individual and group learning mobility in the field of youth and adult education to provide learning opportunities for learners, teaching and non-teaching staff. And to support the internationalisation and institutional development. 

We specialise in designing and facilitating transformative learning experiences within groups and teams, fostering conscious evolution in education, organisations and communities. Our approach is dedicated to creating powerful and meaningful journeys that catalyze positive change and growth for individuals and collectives alike.

ParamitaLab organises mobility initiatives to Florence. The mobility initiative gives an individual or a group of participants the opportunity to participate in a fully customised training course, where the programme can be integrated with cultural experiences. Internships for vocational students can also be organised.

The minimum number of participants for the mobility initiative is 12. Grants are available for groups of participants based in the European Union.

Our approach is to work with you to design bespoke training that meets your needs through this lens:

We approach our work with a sense of wonder and curiosity, observing and exploring constantly evolving elements. It’s dropping our expectations and preconceived ideas about something, and seeing things with an open mind, fresh eyes, just like a beginner. 

An intersectional practice goes beyond purity - a problematic connection, where different trends and classic texts of philosophy merge with other knowledge to form a thought at the crossroads. Movements intertwine, overlap and alternate, forming networks in which seemingly incompatible thoughts become entangled. Just as Freud discovered that people say more than they mean without knowing it, culture and history have an "unconscious". The humanities and sciences are not antinomian discourses, but mutable categories of thought that reappear with different faces, finding their place in "new paradigms".

We seek to understand the underlying connections and causes of events, recognising the interconnectedness of internal and external, tangible and intangible factors. A comprehensive understanding emerges by examining structures, processes, developments, cultural influences, beliefs, and  actions.

To understand, adapt, respond and influence the complex and uncertain realities we live in, we need to take a complex living systems approach. From complexity theory and systems thinking to participatory action research, there is a whole range of tools and approaches we use to explore transformative change.

By combining practical action with reflection, learners can develop a more effective approach to transformative learning that promotes long-term retention and deeper understanding of the subject matter. They are therefore better able to transfer insights, intuitions and learning to their own contexts. It involves engaging in physical action while reflecting on that action to develop a deeper understanding. The ultimate aim is to improve learning strategies that focus on internalised understanding.

We actively explore how change happens and, most importantly for us, experience the phenomena of change in living systems. Change happens in concrete, contextual and specific ways, so our approach to learning is based on 'sensitive empiricism'. Learning through reflection on concrete personal and collective experience and practice, inspired and influenced by theory and method.

The trainings draw on performance, social art, bodywork and contemplative practices as key methods and sources of knowledge that support deeper, diverse and plural ways of knowing. In addition, these practices are a source of creativity and innovation and enable us to engage with complex processes and learning.

The Inner Development Goals (IDG's) provide a comprehensive framework for personal and professional growth, encompassing 23 skills and qualities that are essential for anyone who wants to make a positive difference in their lives. These goals are particularly useful for leaders seeking to effect change, but they are relevant and beneficial for everyone. By focusing on inner development and working to improve these skills and qualities, individuals can accelerate their progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and building a better future for all humanity.
