Session-quest - "How to waste your money in the work with local communities?"

About the Session

Participants of the session will go through a quest in a real time: the experts and you will help the main characters to overcome difficulties in their work with local communities. Your task will be hard - how to invest in the local communities in an efficient way.

Participants will learn

  • What are the most common mistakes (and even failures) happen in the work dedicated at supporting local communities?
  • How can these situations be foreseen? What should be done to avoid or solve them?
  • How to see the change - that the local community is indeed "developing" and the needed impact is achieved?
