Your Impact for Future Generations – An Evening with Mac Macartney & Jon Young
As we face the joyful and often daunting task of building a foundation to support the future generations of all beings, human and non-human alike, key questions emerge:
How do we sustain ourselves?
How will we work together and support one another in the times ahead?
What does community look like?
How do we create the right environment for new solutions to be realised?
Join Mac and Jon for an interactive evening of discussion, stories and questions. Your participation is invited.

For over 30 years, Jon Young has been a leader in the field of village building, nature-based education, Permaculture and cultural mentoring, implementing vital advancements in the understanding and benefits of effective connection modeling. Jon is a deep nature connection mentor, peacemaker, author, workshop leader, village builder, consultant, inspiring public speaker and storyteller.
Jon’s work has been the researching, collecting, universalising and applying of models for re-Connection. Drawn from earth-based approaches, these models are ergonomic in their application—they are neither philosophical or based on any one belief structure. These approaches meet us at our most basic neurological and biological foundations, and are a way of learning and developing in nature that is universal to our “blueprint” as human beings.
As a founder of the 8 Shields Institute, Jon Young has established best-practices process for cultural modelling and nature connection mentoring. He is actively promoting village building globally as a nature-based model of cultural regeneration for the benefit of current and future generations.
Over a period of twenty years Mac was mentored by a group of indigenous elders. During this training and ever since, he has attempted to bring two worlds together – an ancient world-view that emphasises relationship, interdependence, and reverence for life with the significant challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century.
Mac works with leaders across all walks of life – from business to education – inspiring them to put up their hand and join the chorus of people who are singing alive the world of our longing.
He sits on the board of DanoneWave, the largest public benefit corporation in the U.S., was a faculty member of the WWF/IMD Business School ‘One Planet Leaders’ programme in Lausanne for three years and holds an Honorary Doctorate in Education from Plymouth University for his work in service to community.
