This programme is funded by the European Union and implemented by UWC Cyprus.
After two online short courses, UWC Cyprus is returning with a face-to-face summer programme! Join the UWC Short Course “(Re)Imagining Community” this summer in Kornos, Cyprus.
The course will take place in the town of Kornos, where 36 participants will come together for two weeks. Participants will re-imagine what their communities can look like and be equipped with a toolkit to become young changemakers.
Throughout the course, participants will work together in small groups to develop and design a social impact project. Working in diverse groups, matched by their interests, they will be able to experience the value of collaborative and inclusive teamwork.
During the course, participants will have an opportunity to:
- Learn more about and discuss issues like sustainability, diversity and inclusion, and social change
- Build their leadership and changemaker skills - and put them to the test as they develop a social impact proposal
- Join an experiential learning process that centres the participants’ voice and perspectives
- Meet with and make friends with like-minded peers from different cities, towns and countries
