As part of the Every Action Counts programme, FCDL has been getting the government's sustainable development message out to people through community groups. Following a detailed survey, we ran a series of workshops and have produced sample training material which can be used with community group members, activists, people working in the community and community development workers.
Four three-hour taster session packs have been designed for members of community groups. These cover the main areas of sustainable development policy and explore how groups can contribute to a more sustainable world. Click on the titles below to download the packs as pdf documents.
Although much of the material we have produced so far has been created for workshops and more formal kinds of training, the material can also be used in informal learning, where a trainer/worker is working with groups and needs information on a particular topic or a way of introducing an idea, or some examples of what other people have been doing.
The following two taster session packs, also of three hours each, are aimed at paid community workers and others working with community groups. One explores different ways to introduce sustainable development to community groups, and the other focuses on influencing and using local policies to include sustainable development and to generate the resources needed to support this work in communities.
Our latest taster session packs are:
