Program

Our program changes slightly every year as we adapt it to what is of current importance and relevance to the theme, as well as our participants’ needs. The program is delivered through a range of non-formal learning settings, including self-led projects, interactive workshops, role plays, debates, self-reflections and guided reflection activities. Moreover, lectures by guest speakers, as well as excursions to local civil society initiatives will add another layer of inspiration. At the end of each day, participants reflect on their learnings and thoughts in small groups.

“The Short Course gave me knowledge, friendships, acceptance, understanding, support, love, motivation, inspiration. It was a journey of self exploration and a transformation into a self-accepting person. It gave me stories and perspectives. It completely changed the way I see the world. Most of all, it taught me how to be myself and be proud of that. I have never felt more comfortable in my own skin before.”
