UPCOMING COURSES

 

UPCOMING COURSES

Since 2017 we have trained more than 1700 humanitarians, development workers, environmentalists, and community activists. We have worked with over 500 organizations and helped them to refocus their work on justice -- taking their essential programs to the next level while going beyond surface solutions to the root causes of injustice everywhere. 

Our courses are the backbone of everything we do, and we believe that anyone working for a better world deserves the opportunity to build their knowledge, confidence, skills, and community so that they can create both wider and deeper impacts through their work.

The five pillars of the Justice Based Approach inform all of our courses. You can download our FREE Justice Toolkit here or join the hundreds of current JBA practitioners by attending our next Justice Based Approach Foundation Course.

Check out all our upcoming courses below, and allow yourself and your teams the chance to grow!

PARTICIPANTS' VOICE

More than 70% of participants join our courses from word of mouth. Here's what people are saying...

Every six months we will bring together change-makers from around the world to learn the basics of mindfulness with Hiten Solanki in order to build their self-resilience and improve their ability to embed the Justice Based Approach in their work and lives.

OUR METHODOLOGY

Our style of online delivery creates genuine human connection, facilitates deeply reflective and thoughtful discussions, and leads to real impact and effectiveness.

Our courses use mixed methodologies including participatory live sessions, interactive online tools, reflection, movement, games, small group discussions, an online forum, and self-led learning and reflection. Our facilitators run Q&A sessions and you have the opportunity to book one-to-one calls with them during each course. We also send inspiring, short daily emails with additional resources for those that want more!

Each week we also offer a variety of optional sessions to dive deeper into some of the key themes of our courses, to have fun and get to know each other better. Previous sessions have included panel discussions, regional meetups, hackathons, and film screenings.


All of our courses are designed by the lead facilitators in partnership with United Edge co-founders Daniel Bevan and Matthew Kletzing. With combined experience of more than 30 years in the humanitarian, development and human rights sectors across Asia, the Pacific, Africa, and the Middle East, they bring a wealth of hands-on experience and expert facilitation skills. Find out more about their areas of expertise and background here.

Our Facilitators are often joined by a global group of Team Leaders, all of whom have completed the Justice Based Approach Foundation Course previously and are experts in their field. They support small groups during the course to explore the themes in more depth during team discussions.

We offer optional tailored mentoring programs to provide personalized support during and after the course to put your learning into practice. For our course participants, this is 20-33% off our normal mentoring rates! Contact us for more information!

Here's an example of our methodology from the Justice Based Approach Foundation Course:
