Be the Change: Life on Land 2020
|WHAT||Come to Sangam to discover the change you want to see in the world!|
From the bustling streets of Pune to the surrounding rural areas, you will learn, explore and celebrate our Life on Land! The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action to achieve 17 key Goals by the year 2030. This event will allow you to learn and share with others from around the world as you focus on Sustainable Development Goal Number 15: Life on Land.
You will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the work that Sangam’s Community Partners are doing to work towards this Goal and explore Leadership and Advocacy in WAGGGS so that you can BE THE CHANGE in your Community! Take part in this exciting event with others from around the world and experience international friendship in one of the WAGGGS World Centres. Learn about the traditions of an ancient yet changing India. Gain confidence as you discover the colourful city of Pune, through visits to its diverse sites.
This is a Sangam Leadership event. Leadership events emphasise intercultural learning and personal growth through interaction with Sangam’s Community Partner organisations and exposure to the means and methods of creating change. You will participate in a Community Action Project in which you collaborate with one of Sangam’s Community Partners to refurbish a room, plant a garden, or run activities with children or adults. You will be discovering not only the difference you can make in the lives of others but the impact of such work on yourself. This is a great opportunity to grow your leadership skills. You will also have the opportunity to learn about the latest WAGGGS programmes and initiatives through workshops, games and discussions, allowing you to find your own voice and develop the skills you need to effect similar change in the issues you are most passionate about.
