Education & Empowerment
The Education and Empowerment Working Group promotes the growth of innovative initiatives that promote the value and practice of public engagement. We know that education is a primary pathway to empowering communities, directly supporting their equitable development. Offering training opportunities, building formal and non-formal knowledge, and boosting technical skills gives people control over their own destinies, reducing poverty and supporting equality in all its forms. The diversity of experiences, challenges, and regional know-how represented by Fellows in the Education & Empowerment Working Group allow for rich collaboration, adding value to and scaling up individual initiatives while encouraging joint projects.
