Course info:

The Active Citizens training comprises four core modules:

Module 1: Me - Identity and culture: Understanding identity and culture is the key to opening minds to new learning and perspectives, changing attitudes, encouraging empathy and creating a stronger sense of social responsibility. It is also critical to problem-solving and building networks.

Module 2: Me and You - Intercultural Dialogue: participants learn methods of dialogue as a tool for building empathy, trust and understanding within and across cultures.

Module 3: Local and Global Community - We together: Participants learn how communities are local, global and interdependent and develop skills in mapping the community from a variety of perspectives - problem identification, systems thinking and power dynamics. These are used to identify appropriate interventions and a network to address them.

Module 4: Social Action/Social Enterprise start-up Planning:Participants focus on planning a social action initiative in their community, considering the process in different levels of detail and complexity. This involves identifying and clarifying their agenda, a specific intervention and how they will deliver it.
