JOIN THE TINY SUMMIT ON
NOVEMBER 2-4, 2018
A SMALL GROUP OF DEDICATED FUTURE THINKERS EXPLORING IDEAS FOR ADDRESSING OUR BEAUTIFUL & COMPLEX FUTURE.
ABOUT THE TINY SUMMIT
The Lisbon Web Summit is huge where 60,000 people come to bust out many ideas about technology and the future but with so much going on it's hard to focus and connect. Our Tiny Summit on the CO Project Farm offers a counter experience with a small group of creative leaders connecting on some of our biggest future challenges.
Hosted by UNEP Champion of the Earth Dr. Leyla Acaroglu and curated to offer an incredible experience at our bran spa campus 1.5 hours from Lisbon in Central Portugal.
The Tiny summit will bring together a curated group of 12 passionate change-makers, rebielsiouse thinkers and creative doers to discuss how we can all activate a more positive future through challenges, provocations and conversation today.
Our CO Porject Farm is all about activating cretaive optimisum in our increasing overly negative world.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Our farm-based programs are a beautiful mix of intensive learning and recreational enjoyment. We have an incredible emerging creative space on the CO Project Farm that is being designed with sustainability and experience in mind. Set in the rolling hills of a central Portugal, you will be able to enjoy nature walks, freshwater river swimming, organic healthy vegetable-centric eating, relaxing spaces, and amazing local wine.
We have a natural swimming pool on site and a fantastic classroom for connecting and collaborating. Aside from the awe-inspiring setting, you will be learning the tools of the creative change-maker trade: multi-perspective thinking, complex systems identification, problem loving, hyper- reflexivity, and creative approaches to problem solving, along with cognitive, social, and sustainability sciences. In addition to the on-farm experience, you will get access to a pre and post workshop online learning pack designed to work through our core content at your own speed. But with any UnSchool program, expect the unexpected and a little bit of chaotic magic!

CORE themes explored
Food is part of our philosophy for making change. Organic, fresh, locally produced, lovely prepared, shared and celebrated.
Our vegetable-centric approach to nourishment inspires creative, colourful and delicious shared meals for all.
Our custom built outdoor BBQ and pizza oven area uses traditional building techniques and run on scavenged wood from the grove. A marble prep table was found buried on the property and restored to use for this outdoor kitchen.
A long front area serves as communal outdoor dining space, along with various pockets for quiet meals by yourself, as you wish. Currently stone, we will be building out a large patio next to a natural swimming pool. The dining area looks out over the olive grove, a serene place to watch the sky turn pink as it sets.
All your meals at the retreat space are included in your program costs, and are often made right from our own vegetable garden along with local markets.
