Together For Development / Eswatini
1 September 2020
Dates to be confirmed
Together for Development is the UWC Short Course in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland). In a world where extreme poverty, shocking inequality and unfair exclusion persist, the need for change is more pressing than ever.
We believe young people have the ability and passion to change the world. Now in its fourth edition (the first took place in 2011), this year’s course will bring together 30 to 60 participants from around the world to critically engage with the concept of development and deeply understand the issues involved. Above all, we will empower them to become effective, empathetic change makers.
Being in Eswatini is a key component of the course, so participants will engage on- and off-campus with the country. Local community interaction and service are a fundamental part of the curriculum, and all participants will develop a project they can implement in their own communities.
The course is facilitated by a diverse and professional team from around the world, most of whom are alumni of UWC schools or short courses themselves. In addition to academic expertise, they also have on-the-ground experience working in development.
