The Civic Changemakers Programme is a civic innovation, technologies and governance training aimed at empowering community champions who are working or have the ambition to work on technology-enabled solutions for solving civic and governance challenges to deepen their understanding of civic literacy, learn the skills to become democratically engaged and develop the commitment and efficacy to become lifelong leaders and advocates.
Every year, TransparencIT selects and invites six (6) active community champions to develop and scale solutions for disrupting civic participation and improving governance and social justice in their communities. For six (6) weeks, the Changemakers learn through engagement, training, group work and networking to advance their projects.
The sole objective of the programme is to make a difference in the lives of our communities by developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values, and motivation of the changemakers to foster and implement citizens driven solutions.
The programme is specially designed to advance civic-driven solutions to make a positive impact on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in our communities.
The core courses of the programme are comprised of parallel training on experimental learning, leadership development, inclusion, innovation and grants management.
