The Thinking Environment

The Thinking Environment is a simple, disciplined and rigorous set of processes which provoke independent thinking, alone and in groups.

The quality of everything we do depends on the quality of the thinking we do first.” (Kline, 2009)

The Thinking Environment is a philosophy of communication, a practical series of values-based applications which arise from the teaching and coaching work of Nancy Kline (1999 and 2009).  A thinking community uses the processes to frame the culture of how we are together, on- and offline.

Nancy Kline describes the Thinking Environment as a “way of being in the world” (Kline, 2009) and the same principles and practices are as useful in family, community, campaigning and relationship life as they are in a working context.

This project hopes to bring Thinking Environment processes into the Campfire Community, to help us break through untrue limiting assumptions and find new ways of engaging with others, to provoke new thinking and ideas.
