A training on advocacy related to decolonisation of international volunteering in Paris 19.–25.2.2023

Hey you, a participant of Maailmanvaihto’s activities! Are you aged 18–30 years? Do you live in Finland? Are you interested in advocacy work? How about decolonising international volunteering? Participate next February in Paris in the training of the project Decolonise International Voluntary Service!

The training is called ”Decolonising International Voluntary Service: Advocacy Training” and it will offer for twenty young people an opportunity to learn more about advocacy work and to explore together questions related to decolonising international volunteering in 19.–25.2.2023 in Paris, France.

We at Maailmanvaihto – ICYE Finland can send to the training two representatives, one of which we have already chosen. The other position is open due to a cancellation. For the open position, we are looking for such a participant of Maailmanvaihto’s activities who, at least in the light of their current plans, wants and can participate after the training in the work of the advocacy team of the project. The project will continue until August 2024.
