SDGs Training for Multipliers

 

SDGs Training for Multipliers is designed to build the capacity of facilitators and multipliers of the vitally important conversation about how to implement the 17 SDGs and their 169 targets at the local and regional scale in ways that are carefully adapted to the bio-cultural uniqueness of each location. This training is designed to engage local communities in a process that will turn what might be perceived as top-down goals of the United Nations into meaningful projects that are locally relevant and collaboratively implemented by the communities themselves.

 

The training will be based on a set of SDGs Flashcards’, containing more than 200 questions structured into the four dimensions of Gaia Education’s whole systems approach to sustainability (social, ecological, economic and worldview).

Participants will explore these four dimensions of each of the 17 SDGs in question-focused small group conversations aimed at collaboratively identifying actions and strategies that will support the implementation of the Global Goals. Your contributions will help to create local community ownership of the SDGs and ensure that implementation is done in ways that are sensitive to your local culture and ecosystems.

 

The purpose of the half-day event is twofold

  • To initiate community focused conversations on local SDGs implementation;

  • to train people to become multipliers of such conversations.


Methodology

The highly interactive and participatory training engages participants in progressive conversations about the local relevance of the SDGs - based on a set of SDGs Flashcards designed to help structure small group dialogues.

By exploring the four dimensions of sustainability (social, ecological, economic and worldview) of each of the 17 SDGs in question-focused small group conversations, participants will collaborate in developing ideas and strategies for local and regional SDGs implementation through a series of demonstration projects.

The flashcard based facilitation process will enable participants to replicate these community conversations about the SDGs in their government department, at the university, in schools, businesses, and community groups around the Edinburgh area.

 

Times, Location & Food

The half-day training will take place between 9am and 1pm on the 26th September 2017, at Floor 3, Hayweight House, 23 Lauriston St, Edinburgh EH3, located an 18-minute walk away from Edinburgh Waverley Station. See map for more details.
