2021 Social Project Training

12–14 March 2021

What is the Social Project training?

The March 2021 Social Project Training was an intensive weekend of workshops in which participants developed community-oriented projects that they could implement at home. The Social Project was originally designed to be the cornerstone of CCG's Youth Week, and taking it into the digital age has allowed us to work with participants who would have been unable to spend a full week on site in Hungary.

Participants chose UN Sustainable Development Goals on which to focus and worked on self-designed projects that targeted these goals. Through developing projects aligned with their interests and skills, participants gained hands-on experience in order to be able to take education outside the classroom and implement their projects in their communities after the course. Participants were welcome to come in with a project in mind or to choose one during the course.

Experienced facilitators guided participants through the project development process, from concept to realisation. Participants drove every step of the process, coming away not only with new skills to add to their portfolio but also with a concrete way to make an impact.

The Social Project Training is a recurring programme—details for the next Social Project Training can be found here.
