Resilience Consulting

We develop critical thought leadership to co-design regenerative solutions for municipalities, territories and organisations.

Mycelium is an independent consultancy that develops critical thought leadership to counsel climate and social ecology policy makers, and that designs regenerative solutions for specific territories and organisations.

It is part of Mycelium’s mission is to develop and promote strategy innovation and analysis that is essential to deliver climate change mitigation and adaptation measures, as well as earth and social regeneration projects.

Our process to accompany municipalities and organisations towards climate adaptation and restoration aims to re-instate natural climate processes that generate global average temperatures and ocean acidity that are safe for all species and for current and future generations.

Mycelium uses an overarching systemic framework to guide its work across ethics, science, economics, politics and culture.

Mycelium has been formed on a non-political party platform and is based in Luxembourg.

Facilitation

 

Facilitation means ‘making easy’ or ‘easing a process’. We co-create with your team or group event to make sure that the group’s objectives are met, with clear thinking, effective participation and engagement from everyone involved.

Facilitating means providing an objective or neutral perspective while guiding along the team and making its inherent collective intelligence emerge. We are trained in facilitation methods and have a decade of experience in structuring, leading and co-leading processes. We are strategically-oriented systems thinkers, and can also provide a new direction for your thinking and practice, whatever your field.

Leadership is a distributed or collective capacity in a system, not just something that individuals do. Leadership is about the capacity of the whole system to sense and actualize the future that wants to emerge.

Otto Scharmer, “Leading from the Emerging Future: From Ego-System to Eco-System Economies”

Whatever your objectives, the size of your group or the circumstances, we can co-design with you a process to successfully and strategically make your people come together and go further than you thought possible. We will design the experience collaboratively to serve your needs, dynamics and longings, making space for real possibility of transformation.

We offer one-on-one sessions that combine facilitation with coaching, if you have a strategic, personal or professional issue that you want addressed.

We also offer graphic recording, which is a particular type of visual facilitating designed to draw out all the potential and wisdom in your team in a visual and connected way.

Research & Writing

Dr. Katy Fox is an experienced researcher and has full proficiency in all steps of qualitative social research. A list of some of her research interests is here.

We offer any of the following services, also combined and tailored to suit your organisation’s needs.

  • Literature Review
  • Social Science Research Methods
  • Semi-Structured Interviews
  • Ethnographic Research
  • Commissioned Research
  • Analysis of Existing Data
  • Policy Recommendations
  • Reporting for Different Publics

We adhere to the AAA’s Code of Ethics as well as permaculture ethics.

Writing is part of our daily practice. We provide writing services in English, French and German. We offer copy-editing and developmental editing services in English on subjects related to reserach interests.

If you have a writing project (book manuscript, grant writing, etc.) for which you require editorial assistance, please contact us.

Live Graphic Recording

 

We offer live graphic recording so as to draw out all the potential and wisdom in your team in a visual and connected way.

Live graphic recording (also referred to as visual harvesting or graphic facilitation, etc.) involves capturing people’s ideas and expressions in words, images and colour as they are being spoken in the moment. Everyone in the room sees and experiences this live visualisation and can be a part of it. It is exactly this connectedness that allows them to see more, connect the dots, gain insights and enable sound decision-making.

Graphic recording supports the work of the facilitator and/or event manager in a cooperative way. We use a 3 metre long graphic wall. We also require a well-lit space of at least 4×2 m on the ground, ideally a few metres away from the public. We currently only offer analog graphic facilitation services, but can refer you to colleagues that are using digital graphic recording techniques.

Contact us to discuss ways in which graphic recording might enhance your event. Check our blog for examples of live graphic recording.

Past Projects

Mycelium’s Farm

So perhaps it is not the world's best kept secret, but maybe it's news to you: Mycelium Permaculture is starting up an ecovillage/farm on the Belgian border! We're very excited about growing a space for polycultures and community. We are actually opening our Chantier...

Paradiesgaart Design

I am currently working on a permaculture concept design for a large garden in the city, choosing many pollinator-friendly plants that are also harmoniously integrating into the landscape and providing beauty.
