Collaborative Funding Dojo: May 17-July 31, 2021
The TRCC is proud to host an action learning lab, or “dojo,” on collaborative funding from May 17-July 31, 2021.
The Japanese term “dojo” means “the place of the Way.” The way we seek together is a “Just Transition,” which our friends at Movement Generation have described as a path “towards Ecological Justice that does not separate humans from nature, or social equity from ecological integrity.” We gather together in this Dojo to learn and practice the art of sharing funding power as a way of walking that path.
To learn more about the theory of change that has inspired the Dojo, please read The Story of the Clouds and the Forest.
How It Works
Over a dozen hosting teams are offering a variety of action-learning activities “in the Dojo” to advance our collective capacity to move money based on the wisdom and needs of people doing transformational work on the ground. This Welcome to the Dojo blog post has a list of planned activities and the groups offering them.
Read the Dojo Blog below for invitations from the hosting teams. Use the calendar to see when sessions are scheduled–note that most of these are still TBA. Subscribe to the Dojo email list to receive updates as new events are scheduled.
