What is the Social Project Training?
The Social Project Training is designed to give you the tools to address a problem you see in your community—without requiring major resources, connections or specialised background. Through five interactive modules delivered by expert facilitators, you will work closely with peers and experienced mentors to identify a problem you are passionate about—and find a way to do something about it. We use the UN's Sustainable Development Goals as a framework and inspiration, but the project is yours to drive and take ownership of.
