Alternatives to development programs
NCGC is currently collaborating with Frame45 to co-create Alternatives to Development (AtoD) workshops for teachers, campaigners, activists, policy makers, NGOs, volunteers, and the international development sector.
The purpose of the AtoD program is to reimagine a world that upholds the integrity, respect and dignity of all in ways that foster justice, equality and sustainability.
The AtoD workshops will offer tools and resources to reflect on diverse worldviews and perspectives and their influence on social justice, global inequality, and sustainability. Participants will be encouraged to examine their underlying tenets, values and beliefs and how these influence approaches to development. We will explore 'alternatives to development' that open up new pathways toward global solidarity and a better future for all.
The AtoD program is currently in production and the first pilot workshop will be delivered in September 2024. Stay tuned!
