Get Involved

There are several ways you may choose to become involved in our mission.

  • The Compression Thinking Series of Podcasts and Teleconferences – Hear the Podcasts; Join in Teleconferences by clicking here: Many environmental programs concentrate on a few issues. Compression Thinking asks what we must do to address all issues, including those that may not have been identified. None of us, including Doc Hall, are through this conversion in thinking. Collectively, we have to learn to think differently, see differently, approach our problems differently. Over time Doc, concocted four Guidelines to Compression Thinking that have helped him along.Reviewed as a program, Podcast topics #2, #4, #5, and #6 address each of these four guidelines. Topic #3, “Lawns and Biodiversity,” was inserted to introduce how Compression Thinking alters our perception of an activity with which most of us are familiar. Why? Because ecological problems are so severe that we have to change common activities that we take for granted.

  • Form a Learning Circle. The Compression Institute is looking for people like you to create and lead Learning Circles in organizations and communities. Sign up to learn more about Learning Circles.  We’ll help you facilitate until you’re comfortable with doing this on your own. These circles may start by building a base of active participants who meet regularly to discuss problems affecting their workplace or their community, by example by holding Lean Coffees.  In time these should transition into working out what they can do to promote Continuous Regeneration.
  • Participating in a Global Learning Circle is one way to prepare for this. We now have one Global Learning Circle in progress. We will form other Global Learning Circles. And/or Sign up to learn more about Learning Circles. We will also announce a date and time for a teleconference in each newsletter, a few days after each one is published.
  • Events CalendarFind out what we’re up to and maybe we’ll see you at the next Compression event!
  • Tell Us About What You Do. What cool things are you doing that support the Compression Institute mission? Describe them and we’ll publish a profile highlighting those practices for others to learn from. If you are struggling with a complex problem you can’t quite resolve, ask for a 90-minute one-on-one call with Doc Hall or another board member.
  • Join a Teleconference Series. We have one teleconference series on Complex Systems, on the last Tuesday of every month.  We can form more teleconferences on Compression Thinking, Vigorous Learning Organizations, or on major Environmental Risks.
