Are you a professional involved in planning and implementation of projects and programs or someone working in the development field and looking for ways to optimize your impact?
This might be the right fit for you. Beginning January 2023, Utrecht University’s International Development Studies, in cooperation with Shared Value Foundation (SVF) is offering a course on how to optimize development impacts.
More often, organizations and businesses look at impact through the lens of the intervention (and assumed benefits). This learning trajectory, however, will focus on a bottom-up approach through the eyes of different groups, how to make interventions contribute to local needs and priorities, making societies more inclusive and climate resilient.
An interesting and engaging programme awaits the participants. Throughout the interactive and diverse sessions, participants will work on an assignment, develop their own plan, and a chance to focus on the social impact of investments and projects that they are working on or planning to implement. There will be interactive discussions on alternative approaches to social impact assessment and how to apply new innovative ideas at work.
This learning trajectory will be led by Prof. Dr. Annelies Zoomers, founding chair of the Netherlands Land Academy (LANDac) and Shared Value Foundation (SVF), and former chair of the board of NWO-WOTRO Science for Global Development. The programme’s speakers and facilitators are experts and action researchers in various disciplines of international and sustainable development studies.
