Training Workshop: Better Development - A Justice Based Approach

United Edge is looking for leaders and potential leaders of social change, development, and humanitarian work to join us for a series of 3-day intensive and inspiring training workshops, including one in Hanoi on 21-23 March. Together, we will explore themes such as justice, power, rights and participation while developing analysis of systems and alternative models for change, as well as many practical skills. The training is especially for those who are looking to improve their leadership and programming -- we'd love for you to join us!

In 2017, United Edge piloted a similar training programme in 6 countries with almost 300 participants from 130 different organisations. After receiving a lot of requests, we've decided to return to Vietnam and the rest of SE Asia to support the work of up to 300 more people.
