Our Participatory Practices for Sustainable Development course was the first course to be developed and offered by Village Earth. This course explores both the theory and practice of community-based development, focusing on practical tools and skills for cultivating indigenous leadership, mobilizing communities for collective action, accessing resources, and developing long-enduring community-based institutions. Through dialogue, activities, case studies, and other exercises, participants will learn how to work with community members to identify their vision for the future and create the relationships, institutions, and appropriate technologies to move towards it. The techniques taught in this course are based on best practices in participatory, bottom-up approaches to development proven effective throughout the world by Village Earth and our partner organizations.

as we are currently unable to provide sponsorship for our training services.
