What can you earn money doing?
Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means purpose for living. It is a framework to shift your thinking beyond identifying only with what you do: it connects you to why you do it, who you do it for, and how this makes you uniquely you. The ikigai model uses a simple sequence of enquiry questions to unlock the question we all wonder… “What is my purpose?”
In this self-reflective workshop, participants will engage in conversations and exercises that will help them discover their purpose in International Agricultural Development.
We will step through questions about our lives and work, and learn about our own human journey to discover what is meaningful for us and others. You will also connect with like-soul people working in agriculture, who have interest in international development. This is an opportunity to build your networks and have fun while doing it.
Join Dr Anika Molesworth in this 1.5 hour workshop on finding your purpose in International Agricultural Development.
