What is a Discussion Course?

Discussion course books give people a framework to talk about their relationship with the planet and to share in discovering new ways to live, work, create and consume. Our discussion courses have been used in the workplace, on college campuses, in centers of faith, and in the community. They are designed to help break big issues into bite-sized pieces. And they help create a personal network of shared stories and support that makes it easy to take action.

How do I start a Discussion Course?

It all begins with course organizers and their desire to create a community of change. A course organizer is someone like you; anyone can organize a discussion course. Each course book includes tips and guidelines to help facilitators organize a discussion group. We also provide a wide range of support tools, including the course organizer’s guide, registration forms and more. Course organizers choose a topic and invite others to join them to discover change, together.

What is the best group size for a Discussion Course?

The ideal discussion group size is 8-12 people when meeting in person. We recommend that at least 6 people participate but no more than 15, in order to keep the discussion both lively and manageable.

Online discussion courses allow for more participants because they leverage technology to ensure that everyone has a chance to participate (for example, we can use polling questions to gather input from a larger group of participants all at once.) We have successfully facilitated online discussion courses for groups of 25-200 people, and customize the course experience to the size of the group.
