Building the World We Dream About

Building the World We Dream About is a curriculum for an in-depth, congregation-based 24-workshop program. Each workshop is two hours in length and includes “taking it home” components for learning between sessions. It's intended for adults of a variety of ethnic and racial identities who identify as Unitarian Universalist. A shorter version of Building the World is designed for young adults, ages 18-35.


Building the World We Dream About Program Details
Type Description
Name Building the World We Dream About
Author Dr. Mark Hicks
Publishers Unitarian Universalist Association
Optimal group size 12-24 participants per cohort
Recommendations Because this program was written in the late 2000s, it does not use some terminology that we use today in UU and UUA settings. Incorporating current language and concepts like “BIPOC,” “White Supremacy Culture,” “anti-Blackness,” “white fragility,” “de-centering whiteness,” and more will make the program more relevant and useful to today’s Unitarian Universalists.
