A book about our developments, experiences and insights of our school. What happens when you co-create school with the children and teenagers? What if you give space for what can emerge? What works? What is needed to make it work?

I have developed a method by which you can get to the core of a team, project or organization.
What is the overall question?
What are core qualities?
What are desired outcomes?
In a session of one day, I deliver a framework, I ask questions, systematically, we co-create everything into one drawing, which works as an effective memory and a conversation sheet.
I have done sessions and made core drawings with boards, schools, projects for local governments, a community, projects in school, a large social innovative project, and a project in a University of Applied Sciences.
