Empowering Research Methodologies Training Workshop

yfp28. – 31. August 2014 in Bonn, Germany

What is my role as a researcher? What is the role of science in society? And is empowerment relevant for science?

We are pleased to announce a training workshop in Empowering Research Methodologies, organised by the Youth Future Project e.V. (YFP) and the Right Livelihood College (RLC) Bonn.

The YFP has made it its mission to support young people in creating and promoting practices for the transformation towards a life-sustaining society. Transformative approaches are also springing up in many scientific disciplines today, with empowering aspects taking a central role in the development towards transdisciplinarity.

This training workshop is dedicated to exploring empowering research methods based on Participatory Action Research with techniques of visualising knowledge and ideas. It seeks to enable young researchers to work cooperatively with the communities in which they research, and to apply methodologies which support communities in orienting their own livelihoods towards sustainable development.

The intention of this workshop is to launch a cooperation amongst young researchers for furthering empowering methodologies, and every researcher is welcome, especially if you intend to apply these methodologies and engage in promoting them. Therefore, participation in the workshop will be for free and there is the possibility to ask for support in covering travel and accommodation costs.

Please register as soon as possible by filling in the Registration Form and sending it to empowering@youthfuture.de
