Becoming a facilitator

To deliver the Active Citizens programme, we work with a network of partners around the world.

Each of our partners identifies at least one person from their organisation to become an Active Citizen facilitator and to attend a facilitator development workshop.  

These workshops are held regionally and internationally and last around five days. Facilitators explore the vision of the Active Citizens programme in detail and become familiar with the toolkit. This training helps them to:

  • identify priorities and solutions for positive social action within their communities
  • understand links between local issues, national developments, global issues and ongoing social action initiatives
  • identify potential sources of funding for new action.
  • Following their training, they use the Active Citizens Facilitator's Toolkit to design and deliver the Active Citizens training programme to local communities around the world.
