Introduction Seminar (3 sessions x 90 min)

Increase Your Awareness 

Reconnect to your-self, people, and the environment

Course Description

Being a social pioneer, civil society leader, activist or development enthusiast means dealing with yourself, people, and an environment. Civil society is not a technical space. It’s not only about operational excellence. Awareness and self-reflection are crucial for your engagement in civil society.

The current challenging times have a significant impact on us as individuals, the people, and the existing environment: fears about the future are raising, insecurities are growing. Structures and constructions, which humans believed to be safe, have been shaken by unexpected circumstances and many things begin to dissolve. On the one hand, this transformation creates a time full of questions and uncertainty; on the other side, it offers space for innovation and redesign. These are challenging times and require strong awareness skills towards yourself, people around you, and the environment.

  1. Session 1: 13 May 2020 | Online 10 AM - 12:00 PM German time

  2. Session 2: 20 May 2020 | Online 10 AM - 12:00 PM German time
