Active Citizens is the British Council’s social leadership training programme that promotes intercultural dialogue and community-led social development. Since 2018, All One Collective has been working in partnership with the Worker’s Education Association (WEA) to deliver the programme in Calderdale and Sheffield. We have been training participants so that they can further develop their skills and knowledge to develop social action projects and to bring about positive social change in their communities.
In December 2018 we hosted a group of Active Citizens who came from Bangladesh, Myanmar, Morocco, Bury and Newcastle in Calderdale on an International Study Visit to see the amazingly vibrant community projects and organisations that exist in Calderdale.
In February 2019 two of our Active Citizens from Calderdale and Sheffield travelled to Ukraine, visited projects there and connected with other Active Citizens from all over the world.
