Training course – Participate! How to facilitate effective meetings on disaster risk reduction & climate change adaptation

Participate! is an interactive online training module to support the design of effective science, policy and practice events. Participate! focuses on participatory meetings such as workshops, conferences and training courses for the climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) communities.

Each participant will be equipped with a range of participatory methodologies and will complete a real-world project which is reviewed and supported by mentors and colleagues. All examples are drawn from the DRR and CCA world.

The course will run for 5 sessions, with a maximum of 25 participants for each of two series of dates. Find out more here!
