"It's Your Move!" is an Internet seminar (a workshop) for small groups. This Seminar is a distance learning course designed to widen the perspective of participants about global problems and the human role in them. Participants establish small groups to learn about and discuss these issues, and become empowered and motivated to take constructive action-in the way that make the most sense to them at this point in time.
What are the Goals of This Seminar ?
The goals of this Seminar are to widen the perspective of participants about global problems and the human role in them, to help participants establish small groups to study and discuss these issues, and to empower and motivate each person to take constructive action in the way that make the most sense to him/her at this point in time, and to the extent they choose, so as to exert a beneficial influence on those communities - global, national and/or local - of which they are a part. By doing the Seminar participants will find that they are more living life with intentionality and less letting life just happen to them.
Why Should I Bother Participating in This Seminar?
For your children and your grandchildren. And for yourself. By joining the Seminar you will gain insight and information that will motivate you to take positive action, however you see fit, to make the world a better place. You will become part of an uncoordinated grass-roots global current that is building momentum for significant change in the direction humanity is heading.
The Seminar is self-guided, and participants do the components at the pace decided on by each Group. There are 8 Segments to the Seminar, and each Segment has several (between 4 and 8) components. Each Segment has readings, exercises, a set of Meeting Preparation activities, and a guided Group Meeting Agenda. We estimate the individual sections of each Segment will take between a ½ hour and 2 hours to finish. We recommend that Groups set a goal of completing a Segment every 1-2 weeks. At this pace, the Seminar will take 2-4 months to complete. There is an intentional flow between the Segments that will be lost if it is interrupted, or too much time elapses between the Segments.
