Modules of the training

  1.      Kick-off meeting: Here we start into the range of topics and the program together, you can get to know the other participants and the IBG team, and we agree on individual learning goals. (online meeting, date will be "doodled" with all participants)

(5-10 days between June and September 2023)
    Alternatively, you can offer a small workshop on a topic of global learning in one of our international Workcamps in Germany. (one day plus preparation and follow-up; by arrangement between June and September 2023)
