United Edge is organizing and hosting a three-day training program- Better Development: A Justice-Based Approach from the 27th to the 29th of June 2018 in Kathmandu, Nepal. It aims to revolutionize the working style on social change issues, development, and humanitarian work both professionally and personally. It develops the skills to think critically about the systemic challenges facing our sector and wider society and our role in solving them. The program intends to develop participants as a leader and make them 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, the training reflects the reason, after 25 years of rights-based approaches, inequality, environmental destruction and discrimination are bigger challenges than ever before. During the workshop, most cutting-edge approaches are taken a step further by addressing significant gaps in ‘the way things are done’ and improving effectiveness for change. It will develop ability to ask challenging questions and share tools that will transform the way participant design programmes, lead their teams and live their life.
During the workshop, participants will critically challenge many intentions and assumptions about methodology and practice in the following areas:
- Strategic Leadership
- Programme Design
- Participatory Approaches
- System Analysis
- Privilege and Power
- Rights Based Programming
- Learning and M&E – Ethics and Accountability
