 ACADEMY OF CHANGE 

The Academy of Change is a previous and future training course for young people who want to work on climate, social and economic justice, get skilled in methods of change and become part of an international youth network.

In the Academy of Change we investigated solutions together and dived into alternative practices and methods to create the change we want to see in the world. The Academy of Change took place in late 2021 and early 2022, and will continue late 2022.

  • Took place from end-November 2021 to end-January 2022

  • Was open for 60 participants

  • Had a hybrid format with the possibility to participate online from any locality or physically in Copenhagen for those who are living in Denmark

KNOWLEDGE

To create change the first step is to gain in-depth and up-to-date knowledge of ideas and theories within sustainable societal transformation. Therefor, we investigated and co-created visions and solutions together based on the knowledge we gained within:
 

  • System thinking & Future-making 

  • Transformative Environmental Policies 

  • Feminist Economics 

  • Global Justice 

  • Rights and Democracy 

TOOLS

After we investigated what we wanted to change, we needed to know how to do it! For this we needed tools that can help us act within and influence our surroundings. At the Academy the participants got practical tools within:  
 

  • Social movements 

  • Advocacy training 

  • Storytelling 

  • Written and oral communication 

  • Digital activism
