Passport to the Planet
The programme can be run over one, two or three weeks (two optimal) and works best as a multi cultural experience, with students from different countries working together. Optimal group size between 20 and 30 participants. There are four main elements to the programme :
The AWF works within the framework of the UN Millennium Development goals 2015 and the first section of the workshops involves a review of all these goals and of the underlying issues particularly as relevant to AWF locations around the world. On the basis of this information, individuals break into project teams to develop ideas of particular interest to them.
. This section involves each team developing its project idea in light of a series of presentations on key issues- Project Management, Cultural Sensitivity, Fund Raising, Risk Assessment, Marketing... Each evening they have to present to the group their developing ideas in the light of each new skills presentation. These group sessions are designed to be combative, teams having to defend their developing thoughts.
The final section involves each team having time to develop their ideas with mentoring support. This is a rigorous process and culminates in a final presentation to the group by each team in which they have to present both their final project idea and 'plan' and he web pages and marketing materials developed in support.
Throughout the workshop there will be a series of sessions on Ethical Enquiry. These are designed to get individuals and teams thinking ethically about what they are planning, an important ingredient to their developing ideas.
