Community Builder Training with Protection Approaches
Insert shortcode
All day long
From 10-01-23 to 15-01-23

Join this free course led by identity-based violence prevention charity, Protection Approaches in partnership with China Exchange and learn more about the contribution you can make in your own community. The expert-led sessions see participants guided through a series of discussions to explore how they can contribute to building strong, inclusive, connected, and equitable communities.

Participants learn:

  • The causes of community divides and marginalisation
  • What really works in building more inclusive, connected and equitable communities including best practice in community building from around the world
  • The practical actions they can take in their communities to dismantle the barriers faced by those who are marginalized and to make those communities more connected and equitable
  • The principles guiding how to work in and with communities in meaningful, participatory ways
  • Methodologies to design impactful projects for positive change

Is it for me?

  • Are you involved in some sort of community perhaps through a club, your workplace, a faith group, a voluntary group, a forum, or an association?
  • Are you passionate about making our communities more inclusive, connected and equitable places for all but not sure where to start or want to gain new skills?

If you answered “yes” this training has been designed for you. We particularly want to encourage people who might think twice before joining a training like this such as those with special educational needs or who don’t always feel confident speaking up in group activities. Our team will be happy to speak to you ahead of the training to understand how we can make sure it is as accessible and comfortable for you as possible.
