CHANGEMAKER COURSE

WHY?

We believe everyone is a changemaker. There is no superhero, no enlighten government, NGO or institution that alone can change the world for better. We need each and every one of us to take a step and together we can make a difference.

WHAT?

We prepare people to become changemakers by giving them tools, inspiration, contacts, knowledge, experience and self-confidence. The standard Changemaker Course lasts 6 days and it is based on the Create Your Story, Change The World methodology. Among others, it includes the following topics:

  • Identifying main challenges both from a global and a local perspective

  • Developing key changemaker skills (identified through 120+ interviews with changemakers from all over the world; e.g. communication, teamwork, mindfulness, listening, empathy)

  • Identifying our own strengths, values and dreams

  • Planning, implementation and evaluation of a social project

  • Sharing the vision (collaborating with media, public speaking)

  • Looking for resources

 

According to needs, we also offer shorter versions of the Changemaker Course, such as a 4-day training or the Changemaker Weekend.

In collaboration with Fundacja Wyobraź sobie we designed and organized Changemaker Courses for children and youth.

 

As appetiser and introduction to the Changemaker Course we offer the Changemaker Game – a board game which allows us to share in an interactive way basic information about our project, the values it is based upon and, above all, changemaker stories from all over the world.
