AVPN Global Conference 2023 | 20 - 22 June 2023


Better Development: A Justice Approach to Social Change is a participatory and engaging training that will build your leadership skills and empower you to learn and innovate for sustained impact in your work and career. We will explore themes such as justice, power and participation while developing your analysis of systems and alternative models for change.

This training will not only improve your effectiveness and leadership, it may well change your life.
