Better Development: A Justice Approach
Our three-day workshop will revolutionize the way you work on social change issues, development, and humanitarian work both professionally and personally. You will develop the skills to think critically about the systemic challenges facing our sector and wider society and your role in solving them.
We will develop you as a leader and make you more effective in bringing about positive change.
Justice and rights are the cornerstone of social change, development and humanitarian work. With a Justice Based Approach, we reflect on why, after 25 years of rights-based approaches, inequality, environmental destruction and discrimination are bigger challenges than ever before. During the workshop, we take the most cutting-edge approaches one step further by addressing significant gaps in ‘the way things are done’ and improving our effectiveness for change. We will develop your ability to ask challenging questions and share tools with you that will transform the way you design programmes, lead your teams and live your life.
Our workshops are participatory, innovative and proven to be incredibly impactful. Join us!
What: During the workshop, we will critically challenge many intentions and assumptions about methodology and practice in the following areas:
Privilege and Power
Rights Based Programming
Learning and M&E
Ethics and Accountability
We will also explore a number of innovative and exciting practical approaches that you can apply to your work.
This workshop aims to challenge you, inspire you and give you the tools to lead social change, development and humanitarian work that is truly transformative.
In 2017, we trained 269 people from 127 organisations in a Justice Based Approach from across Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Indonesia and Timor Leste. After receiving a lot of requests, we have decided to return to Asia with a series of 10 more trainings in 2018. We will be returning to Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Indonesia and Timor-Leste and bringing our workshop to Myanmar, Bangladesh, the Philippines, India and Nepal. See our website for full schedule.
