How will we work?


The methodology of the training course is conceived in ways that require active participation and exchange between participants. It is based on participants’ own experiences and builds on concrete actions for the future. The methodology of the training programme is based on the main principles of experiential learning cycle and non-formal education.


The programme is designed with a logical flow that starts with introduction to concepts and progressively gets into the topic, to end up working on the creation by participants of field research and analysing collected data. This way, the course will close with a document containing all the information gathered in the training.
