Empowerment Course Registration

The empowerment course for refugees and migrants starts in March 2022

After the success of our first beginners’ empowerment course, from March 2022 the Hungarian Helsinki Committee will start another entry-level empowerment course. We are aiming to recruit eight refugees and migrants who want to be more active in Hungarian society. 

We will step on the following roadmap on our 8-week-long journey: 

  • We will first get to know each other and ourselves better through sharing experiences about what shaped our worldviews and our socialisation.
  • Then the participants will be able to share which issues are bothering them in the Hungarian society, and what issues they want to change.
  • We will then map the Hungarian social and political context.
  • We will identify the key Hungarian and European social and political actors, and we will discuss how we can use them to achieve the changes we want to see in society.
  • We will analyze successful Hungarian and international social actions, and we will discuss why they were impactful.
  • We will get to know the five ways to address social problems (activism, advocacy, service provision, community organising and community development).
  • At the end of the course, the participants will learn how to design their own social actions and social campaigns. 

Join the course if you are happy to share your ideas and feelings with like-minded people in a safe group and if you want to become more active in Hungarian society! 

If you are interested, please write an email until 27th February to Zoltán Somogyvári here: zoltan.somogyvari@helsinki.hu

We will get in touch with you and will explain the course in more detail. We will agree on the dates of the course depending on the availability of the majority of the participants.
