The Empower Action Team in Asia are putting on their third workshop for educators; this time in magical Siem Reap, Cambodia.

The three day experiential learning workshop is designed to upgrade your knowledge and skills in facilitating service projects and social enterprise among your students in a real life setting. Over the three days we will take you through a series of tools, simulations and hands-on activities you can use with your students covering topics such as:

• The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals
• The 4 stages of service learning
• Project management tools (needs analysis, planning, implementation, evaluation, funding)
• Curricular connections
• Social enterprises

This is a great chance to connect with and learn from service minded educators in an authentic experiential setting.

Where?

For the first half of the workshop you will homestay in the rural Cambodian village of Chansar and conduct a needs analysis linked to the UN SDGs.

For the second half of the workshop, switch to Siem Reap to explore the huge success of social enterprises in this city. Gain a better understanding both as a possible solution to development issues and as a skill builder among your students.

When?

February 17th-19th 2017

Costs

From $400 ($450 if single accommodation is required in Siem Reap). This includes accommodation for 3 nights and all meals in that period as well as the workshop itself.

See you in Cambodia soon!
