The Welcome Guide that you are reading will guide you to organise and facilitate your first 2 Movers Workshops, on your preferred topics. Note that you can only facilitate a workshop topic that you have attended previously as a participant. The learning pedagogy behind the Movers Workshop is that knowledge is embedded not in an individual who is an expert but in the activities and interaction of the group.
Week 1 - Introduction to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (Aspiring Movers Fellows)
After attending Movers Workshops, participants will be able to:
● Understand and explain the big picture around the SDGs, its fundamental
components and its history.
● Identify which SDGs most resonate with them and are most relevant to them.

Week 4 - Design Thinking
Design Thinking as a Practice for Change
Though design thinking is typically considered a practice for product development, design thinking is an all-encompassing process that offers a different approach to change leadership. The design thinking discipline focuses on centering people at the heart of any initiative. Leaders can create solutions that best fit those most affected by the change by taking a human-first perspective to change.
