Art of Hosting - Karlskrona 2017

''In our every deliberation, we must consider the consequences for the next seven generations''. This teaching was part of the new story that ended a long war between the Native American tribes that became known as the Iroquois Confederacy. Today,

Art of Hosting Karlskrona is a 4-day training designed for learning simple yet powerful practices that build community, activate collective intelligence and foster individual and collaborative leadership practices that give us the capacity to navigate the complexity of our world as it is today.


The purpose of the training is to:

  • Explore, learn and practice collaborative means of responding to complex systemic challenges in our communities through engaging conversations that matter.

  • Build individual and organizational capacity for participatory leadership across all levels of society.

  • Foster a community of practice that may together find answers to the challenges we face as a global society, especially looking at the theme of this year being the deepening divisions within our society.

Art of Hosting Karlskrona

This is the 8th year that an Art of Hosting training will be happening in Karlskrona. This event has a unique history and really is an iconic event with its own brand of amazing energy. Each year it discusses a different theme, and has a different organizing and hosting team. It is both one of the largest and one of the most energetic AoH trainings on the calendar. This training attracts young professionals, corporate leaders, students, social entrepreneurs and many others. Last year we had 125 participants from all over the world!

Participants come to learn and explore a variety of practices and methods that they can use to apply in their local community or in their professional work. Not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to afford their training. Art of Hosting Karlskrona was founded around the idea to make the training more accessible and be as inclusive as possible. This means that our prices are significantly lower than other trainings.

Hosted by:Students of MSc. Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability in cooperation with variety of teams from the Art of Hosting community. Steward team includes Mary Alice Arthur, Kajsa Balkfors & Phil Cass.
