Facilitation is a working method which plays an increasingly important role in professional everyday life. In facilitated processes the factual and the emotional relationship level are equally important. A professional facilitator must be able to shape both levels simultaneously and evenly to create a constructive and open-minded atmosphere in working groups. The focus of this training course is on the „how“ - giving the participants concrete suggestions for practical use.

Facilitation skills are required in many different contexts whenever people come together to work, discuss, plan, evaluate, solve problems or share experiences. This course is very hands-on in character and will emphasize how to design and conduct participatory workshops, meetings, short trainings or other group sessions with simple but effective tools and techniques. We will reflect on the roles, competencies and responsibilities of facilitators. Some basic knowledge on the creation of effective learning environments and on working with adults will be given to better understand how to design lively, dynamic and participatory workshops. We will create our “facilitation toolbox” to discuss how to use methods and tools and adapt them according to different objectives, contexts and phases of interactive workshops. We will also practise some methods and techniques like different forms of brainstorming, group work settings, workshop design steps as well as the use of icebreakers and energizers. The course is directed to beginners without or with first experience in the design and facilitation of workshops.
Disaster Risk Management has become a key element of relief, rehabilitation, and climate change adaptation programs, as well as development policies and programs in general. The course provides theoretical and practical knowledge, tools and methodologies on risk management related to major types of nature-induced disasters. It enables participants like staff of humanitarian aid and development institutions and related organizations including the science community to successfully conceive and implement disaster risk reduction programs, grass-root actions as well as longer-term climate change adaptation. It also enables practitioners and decision-makers from other sectors to analyze whether disaster risk may play a major role in their working context and to design risk mitigating measures. The course offers a unique combination of knowledge transfer, practical exercises, field excursions and learning and sharing among the trainees coming from different parts of the world.

Humanity is becoming an increasingly urban species. At the same time cities are currently playing a crucial role in why and how we are fundamentally altering the Earth System. Cities are home to problems and opportunities for a more sustainable global development in the „urban century“. On the one hand, rapid urbanization, unmanaged expansion, GHG emissions, pollution, and ecosystem degradation through urban activities are taking their toll on humans and the environment. On the other hand, cities are the centers of economic growth, innovation, employment, education and prosperity. The idea of “greener cities”, and transformation of cities into them, is necessary for a more sustainable development of humanity. This requires a timely implementation of innovative ideas, measures, and instruments for environmentally sound urban development on the ground. This course is an interdisciplinary introduction to how cities function as barriers and solutions to a more sustainable development in the „urban century“. The focus is more on the „bigger“ picture than on „hard practice“ on the planning level.
