What is Active Citizens?
Active Citizens is a social leadership training programme that promotes intercultural dialogue and community-led social development.
Through the programme, we bring together people with different beliefs and perspectives to learn from and share with each other. Working with our partners around the globe, we train participants in the skills and knowledge needed to affect social change in their communities.
Active Citizens connects thousands of like-minded people around the world who collectively want to make a fairer and more inclusive society.
How Active Citizens works
We work with partner organisations around the world to deliver and develop the Active Citizens programme.
Delivery partners identify facilitators and we train them in the skills they need to deliver the Active Citizens training to others.
Following their training, they use the Active Citizens toolkit to design and deliver the training programme to participants in their local communities around the world.
Participants receive the tools and the support they need to set up or adapt the way they run their own Social Action Projects to tackle a social issue within their community.
Communities are connected globally through international opportunities to share learning and ideas as well as through the website and social media.
