What is COMMUNITY BUILDER TRAINING?
A online training course facilitated by leading experts in building kinder, safer more inclusive communities. During interactive sessions taking place over either two days you will discuss and learn about:
- the processes that create divides, prejudice, and identity-based violence
- what really works in building kinder, safer, more inclusive communities
- how to design impactful projects for positive change
- principles to guide how to work in and with communities in meaningful, participatory ways
Following the training, every participant will be encouraged and supported to apply what they have learnt in the training to work they are already doing, or even through a new initiative, whether it is in their workplace, community, group, or club.
Who is it for?
The training is aimed at anyone passionate about creating positive change in their communities and will help them to build their knowledge and skills on what really works to bring people together, tackle injustice, and increase cohesion. The expert-led sessions see participants guided through a series of interactive activities and discussions to explore how they can contribute to building strong, inclusive, connected, and equitable communities.
