Session Description

During this session will we explore how to create trainings that maximise collaboration and peer sharing. We will look at ways to include participants as stakeholders in event/training development and increase interaction and peer learning. And we will discuss how to ensure that not only event/training goals are met, but also that participants walk away with a set of allies they have build solidarity with andcan support them in their work.
