Our Courses

Develop the leadership skills you need to become a transforming influence at work and in the world.

Inner Activist courses are led by professional educators and social change activists committed to helping change makers become more effective leaders. We believe the more we understand about ourselves, our relationship to others and to the living world, the stronger our change-leadership can be.

Hosted in beautiful coastal British Columbia, our courses explore why and how we operate in our work and in the world to clearly identify the barriers we may face and learn powerful tools to create new ways of approaching change work.

The Inner Activist is a project on Tides Canada’s shared platform.

"Inner Activist courses allowed me to develop greater compassion for myself and others, and greater awareness of how marginality and privilege infuses everything we do and say. A reminder to constantly question my assumptions, and develop a more nuanced ability (hopefully) to use my power wisely while supporting others to do the same." Caitlyn Vernon, Coastal Campaigner, Sierra Club of British Columbia
