We're pleased to announce that United Edge is returning to Phnom Penh in coordination with Oxfam Cambodia to host our 6th training in Cambodia (and 30th in the region). The training is called Better Development: A Justice Based Approach and takes place from 3-5 April. Come be challenged and inspired while learning a new approach that many have said is radically transforming their work and lives!
The training is designed for humanitarian, development, social change, and environmental justice workers of any level. The training programme in 2018 achieved 98% satisfaction (more results here) and many stories of change. In Cambodia alone, 135 people from 51 organisations have already attended -- including INGOs, UN agencies, donors, local organisations, social enterprises, and independents. We've been asked by many to return to Cambodia for more trainings in 2019, so we're pleased to be coordinating with Oxfam Cambodia to make it happen. Attached is a brochure, and there's more information below this email or online at www.unitededge.net/events.
The training is currently 60% full already, and we would love to have your organisations, partners, staff, and colleagues represented. Here is the booking form to register: https://united-edge.typeform.com/to/UvDqc9.
If you cannot come to the training on 3-5 April, we are hosting the same training again in Phnom Penh from 19-21 June, and you can sign up using the same link. Feel free to contact with any questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
United Edge is a social enterprise that supports development and humanitarian workers around the world. We will return to South Asia soon for our flagship training, which especially builds on and fills the gaps in conventional human rights based approaches, as well as building capacity on strategy development, programme design, impact and innovation, monitoring and evaluation, critical thinking and reflection, participation, and leadership.
The training is called Better Development: A Justice Based Approach and takes place from 6-8 February in Colombo (Sri Lanka), 12-14 February in Dhaka (Bangladesh), 26-28 February in Nepal (Kathmandu), 5-7 March in Myanmar (Yangon), 3-5 April in Cambodia (Phnom Penh), 13-15 May in PNG (Port Moresby), 22-24 May in Timor-Leste (Dili), 12-14 June in Laos (Vientiane), 19-21 June in Cambodia (Phnom Penh), and 9-11 July in the UK (London).
We focus on developing critical thinking and reflection for leadership and programming, and it's designed for humanitarian, development, social change, and environmental justice workers. There's more information online here. You can also check the reviews and testimonials, watch a video about the methodology, and a video introduction to the training.
We usually have a rich mix of organisations and individuals attending -- such as UN agencies (like UNDP, OCHA, FAO, etc), INGOs (like Save, World Vision, Amnesty, WWF, ActionAid, Oxfam, ChildFund, etc), local and national organisations, other development partners (like donors, embassy staff, etc), and independent participants. In 29 trainings across 13 countries in Asia, nearly 750 people from over 250 organisations have already attended, and 98% say they would recommend it to others. Many people tell us its one of the best trainings they've ever attended.
The training is relevant for any level or department of staff, and participants only need a good level of English. There is more information about training fees and other details online here. We also have a 10% discount for groups of 10 or more. If there are any inclusion needs or concerns, please also let us know, too.
