Promoter for Climate Justice

LEAD for Climate Justice is a six month vocational training for adults who want to become committed to climate justice in their area, in a systematically, competent and effective way. They learn solid background-knowledge, especially prepared by scientists from the famous Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), as well as competences in project management, communication and climate balancing. In order to achieve learning through dialogue, the work is presented by NGOs in the South, project-partners of Brot fuer die Welt, and an online-live dialogue takes place.The central learning place is the virtual LEAD learning-platform. Here, learning takes place at home, in the office or somewhere outside, self-determined and self-organised. Students receive support via e-tutoring. During two periods of presential tutoring of 1-½ days each, knowledge is deepened, trained and adapted to one’s own practical experience.

The training can be booked individually for groups. For further information or individual offers please contact:

Theme modules

The theme modules are organised chronologically and take place during online-periods. A forum about determined issues facilitates interactive information and discussion with other participants on the course. The learning-platform provides all documents and information for the course. On-line discussions with experts are also available.

Competence modules

These modules allow the gained knowledge to be put into practice in enterprises, organisations and the public at large. The combination of theory and practical experience qualifies the students to carry out a local action in their own working area. The competence modules are elaborated during the first two periods of presential tutoring. 

Dialogue module

One speciality of the dialogue module is an oportunity to know people affected by climate change in the South, via online live discussions. The interchange with partner organisations in Asia, Africa and Latin America raises awarenes to the climate problems and shows successful attempts for solutions. The dialogue with stakeholders in the South takes place in parallel to the theme and competence modules.

Local actions

Knowledge and Competence are taken into practice in a local action and thus they contribute to spreading the idea of climate justice within their own area of aplication.  The local action is evaluated and documented and this way it can be provided to other multipliers.
