All One Collective and Lab is working in partnership with the British Council to run Active Citizens – a social leadership training programme that supports people to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to bring about positive social change in their communities.
This year the programme will focus on developing social action to address local environmental issues and local responses to the climate crisis.
We are looking for motivated people to participate in the programme. For this reason, we really hope you can help promote the training and if you can let us know about specific people within the community or the voluntary and community sector who you think would benefit from the Active Citizens programme.
