Inclusive Governance for Youth Activists is a FREE online course aimed at youth between 14-20 who are engaged in social, educational, environmental and/or political projects within their communities.
INCLUSIVE GOVERNANCE FOR YOUTH ACTIVISTS is a online course aimed at youth between 14-20 who are engaged in social, educational, environmental and/or political projects within their communities.
The course teaches a method of governance called Sociocracy, which is based on consent decision-making. This means that every voice matters and everyone needs to give their consent to make a collective decision. The youth will learn how to facilitate democratic meetings with their peers in an inclusive and engaging way, which can be used to run a Youth Parliament, for example. The full course lasts 10h, spread across 5 session of 2 hours each every week.
Every £550 raised we will offer a free training to a group up to 10 young people. So THIS IS AN ONGOING CAMPAIGN - and you can choose to contribute each month here in Fundly. Our first course is already booked and starting on the 6th April 2021 and we hope to continue offering this course once a month to a group of youth.
This course is facilitated by Charlie Shread and Marianne Osorio from Wondering School. All the funds will go towards paying the facilitators so the course can be free for the youth. You can read more about the project here: www.wonderingschool.org

ABOUT INCLUSIVE GOVERNANCE
The approach that we use for an Inclusive Governance is Sociocracy. This is a method of governance based on dialogue and inclusion of all people in the decision-making process, in a way that all voices are heard. This model is an alternative to majority rule decision-making, which frequently generates exclusion of minorities, segregation and resistance to change.
The principles of sociocracy that will be developed in the course are:
You can learn more about sociocracy in the School Circles documentary film, produced by us: www.schoolcirclesfilm.com
