GLPI 2021 October Institute will be held online
Every year, GLPI offers a month-long training institute organized in the month of October and usually held in Gitega, Burundi. This year, due to Covid-19 restrictions and to abide with the rules of protection and prevention, the training will be held online.
The training, which is done in both English and French, is comprised of four week-long course modules on peacebuilding. GLPI is equipped with highly experienced facilitators and hence ensures the same high quality of training and a powerful interaction of participants and facilitators despite the challenges of online training.
Four courses are planned for the entire month, one module every week. The course will consist in live sessions, group discussions, panel presentations, case study, research and assignments.
GLPI participants will be invited to attend special webinars.
