Event description

Description

The Training will be a 4-day intensive course
Using non-formal learning methodologies, the training led by experts, will share information about the SOIL4LIFE project, including:

  • The importance of soil protection & management
  • Learning about the Voluntary Guidelines for Sustainable Soil Management (VGSSM)


Proposed agenda

The Training will take place during the CCIVS Global Human Rights week organised by CCIVS, during which one day will be dedicated to the actions of the training and work of CCIVS members towards Climate Justice.
The training seeks to prepare Soil Ambassadors who may then take the information gained during the Training course and support with the implementation of actions in their sending organisations projects during 2020.
Participants will learn how to share information concerning SOIL4LIFE with their local projects, by using methodologies that train the trainer. They will learn how to communicate, how to use the communication tools which are in place and how to ensure follow up in their local projects. During the training the participants will collectively build a model to work on soil protection and conservation, which they can then adapt to their local reality and implement in their home countries. They will share this model on return with their sending organisations and will work to develop and implement the model during the local action.
As a result, each organisation will be requested to implement at least 1 local campaign, which focuses on the importance of soil protection – this activity will be highlighted through the global communication campaign.
CCIVS will coordinate the writing of a manifesto, the content of which will include an overview of the state of soil protection and management, a call to action and a pledge from civil society organisations.
The creation of the manifesto will start with the Training Course, participating organisations will be asked to give their feedback on what they would like to see on a manifest.

Post Training and Support Structure

A blog space will be created for the participants to share questions and updates about what they are doing once they arrive back home – in this way they can mutually support each other, and any questions they cannot answer will be given support by the experts (trainers, CCIVS and Legambiente). They will also be able to request skype calls and send emails for any questions or doubts they may have.


Application procedure

In order to ensure a multiplier effect and the right candidates for the training, participants will be asked to implement what they learn during the training in the local actions (workcamps) being organised in their countries during 2020. In order to support their learning and recognition of this, after the training they will gain the title of ‘soil
ambassadors’ and be presented with a certificate to this effect CCIVS will request the participants signing up to the Training Course to share an example of the local action they could run, the participants will be asked to update this information in the beginning of 2020 when each organisation has their annual programmes finalised.
