ECW 2022 | 12 years of life | 7th edition-1st online

DURATION: 4th & 5th February 2022 

TIME: 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm (CET)

LANGUAGE: English 

INFO: ecw@ilnodogroup.it

Dear Prospective Participant,
you are warmly invited to join this innovative and experimental international Group Relations Conference.
ECW began its journey in 2011 and over the years has tapped into a line of active enquiry that feels essential to recognise in relation to the developing climate crisis.
In expanding the traditional work of a GRC through integrating an awareness of energetic resources – personal as well as of the earth/world – and of ‘body matter’ as source of knowledge, ECW focuses on wellbeing, on creative collaboration and on interdependence.

This edition will be online. This in itself is a challenge as well as a necessity, given that the online environment has become as much part of our lives as any other geographical/cultural/political context.

In line with this mind of enquiry, ECW online is opting for a different approach to payment, this based on trust, generosity and awareness.  The aim in this is to practice both shared humanity and a sense of inclusive communities:

The full registration fee is 250 euro. 

Nobody will be turned away if they are not able to afford that.
Please contribute according to the awareness of your circumstances and those of the others.
It could be more, it could be less.

We are very much looking forward to working together,

Franca Fubini and Luca Mingarelli(co-directors) with Anabel Navarro and Sara Scrimieri (co-administrators); Maria Pia Conte, Tim Jones, Jack Lampl (consultants)

The primary task of this conference is to offer participants the opportunity to explore how awareness of resources, energy and creative collaboration can introduce wellbeing in the organizations to which they belong. The challenge of the work is to extend the field of attention to the unconscious as it manifests itself by observing the languages of bodies in space, of energy fields, of nature, of context and patterns that connect the parts. 

Learning is facilitated by accessing individual and group energy and through awareness of the relationships that develop. ECW relates to social context/culture and to nature and the human place within nature. What is nature telling us, what are we telling nature and can the dialogue of human and non-human nature bring blossoming for both? In present times of climate change, pandemic and deep global crisis these fundamental relationships ask for our attention; they will be a focus for the conference. 


The conference is open to anyone, from all walks of life, who is interested in understanding groups, organizational dimensions and the evolutionary level found in the social contexts in which we live. Specifically it is directed at those who would like to sustain existing resources in a better and ecological way and to bring new thoughts and wellbeing into the organizations where they operate. 

ECW is a work in progress and a fertile field of research in the field of Group Relations Conferences: we recommend, if you have already participated, to join the first online edition to deepen learning and develop the ability to apply it in the context of your life.


The design of the online conference incorporates traditional events of Group Relations Conferences alongside specific events that explore the language of the arts and of the moving body in space, such as Vocabulary of Movement, Sound Lines, and Dreams Move. The conference series emerge from an evolving organization shaped by the collaboration of the participants and of the staff. Learning is experiential and based on the study of the here and now. 


  • The role of the body is vastly under utilized in conferences here in the U.S. and I was so happy to be able to bring all parts of me to the conference and very much appreciated the evolution from the first ECW. The movement event at this conference was revelatory… While brief non-traditional explorations (art, movement. music etc.) can be very helpful to introduce some element of play into conferences and provide a creative entry into the unconscious, I don’t think that the whole person and system is accessed as completely as was the case in ECW. JL 
  • 2019 It has contributed to reflect on human nature and the different behaviours people display around work and leadership… I understood better the mind body connections, which are often neglected. AN 
  • 2019 Being able to see oneself reflected in the other, feeling the critical issues and conflicts within the group they belong to and in the other groups has been a reason for growth for me SC 2019
