Change the World has organized different educational and informative activities in many parts of the world – each place with its culture and local context – such as: Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Columbia, Brazil, Puerto Rico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Mexico, USA, France, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Senegal and Lithuania. In some countries we’ve been pioneers when it comes to introducing the concepts of permaculture and ecovillages.
Active participation from those who assist our events, exchange of knowledge and learning through living is our pedagogical base. Practical experience together with the support of innovative audio visual resources allow us to go deeper into each subject of discussion.
Our activities have been oriented towards various groups of participants, both at an intergenerational level and at different educational levels: settlers, farmers, indigenous villagers, university students, proffesionals, academics, state employees, members of NGOs and neighbourhood organizations. The participants can choose to follow our programs in of the following languages: Spanish, English, French or Norwegian.
We often go on tour in Norway, in Latin America and also in other countries. This way, we enable different sectors and groups the access to practical information and the oppotunity to learn about questions concerning the enviroment, sustainable development, climate change and globalization, from a different angle. Each and every one of these groups and individuals aquires the tools necessary in order to initiate processes of change based on sustainable development.
