On the 4-6 August 2015, they trained eighteen amazingly talented and passionate High School students on sustainability and systems thinking, utilizing games and tools from AtKisson Group (Compass) and The Systems Playbook (Booth-Sweeny and Meadows). These students then trained seventy-five of their teachers and other invited guest on the same materials. It really was empowering for both the students and teachers, as they were able to reverse roles and perspectives as teachers, facilitators and learners.

Michael Lees also inspired the school faculty with a personal relevant keynote address, followed later by a whole school sustainability and leadership seminar for the school sustainability leadership team.
