Gaia Education Training of Trainers (ToT) course is answering a worldwide demand for skilled facilitators able to encourage transformative learning environments and host multi-stakeholder conversations that enable collaborative action.
The aim of the Training of Trainers is first and foremost, to help you deepen your experience in how to teach, facilitate and train people by enabling collaboration and participation among a community of learners. In addition, we support and hope to inspire you to identify what you are most deeply called to teach, and most importantly, why participatory methods are so critically important for the engagement of communities and the future of life on Earth.

This training intensive will take place on 12-13 October and is included in the Training of Trainers or can be taken as a stand-alone training.
