"Anything without us is not for us" - people affected by crises know best about their situation and what it takes to improve it. They only really accept the solutions that they themselves have helped to create. For cooperation in emergency and disaster situations, there are working methods that make it possible to respect these principles. The course offers access to such working methods that go beyond many current practices. More and more actors in the international humanitarian aid system are working with these approaches. The trend in this direction and the need for it are obvious - especially in view of the current Covid crisis.
The Training will take place in March 2021, more information will follow soon.
