Action x Change
Action x Change is a 15 day bilingual (English/Spanish) and residential summer programme organised by UWC España (UWC Spanish Committee Foundation) to extend the reach of UWC values to more young people in Spain and abroad.
The first programme took place in July 2012.
Under the theme of social entrepreneurship, 40 young people aged 15-17 develop their own social projects while acquiring, exercising and furthering soft skills and tools, such as team building, leadership, conflict resolution, budgeting, public speaking, debating, project designing, etc. to help them to implement their ideas with a social impact in their communities. In addition, specific workshops on environmental awareness, global affairs and activities to foster creativity, sports and outdoor activities will offer the participants a more complete experience.
The team of international trainers and facilitators is made up of UWC alumni who are themselves social entrepreneurs and/or have experience in running summer camps and outdoor activities.
Junior and senior social entrepreneurs, as well as other guest speakers who are experts on their fields will also be visiting the programme.
All the participants who complete successfully this transformational experience will receive a certificate of the Summer Programme Action x Change.
Dates for the course are: Sunday 29 June to Sunday 13 July 2014.
