Training

In our fast-paced and information overloaded world, it’s hard to be heard. Changing people’s hearts and minds is a huge challenge when we have limited budgets and little capacity.

We provide research-based training to help individuals and organisations tell their own human rights stories.  You can register for an upcoming session, or get in touch to request a workshop for your organisation.

  • Apply your learning to your own work
