The European Leadership Initiative (ELI) helps committed activists reach their potential. Joining ELI is free and gives activists access to a supportive learning environment, which in turn allows them to further develop their political positions and leadership skills within a culturally diverse European (supranational) context.
ELI is built around the Democracy School’s international peer-learning programme for political activists. This is a flexible, modular programme, which is adapted to each member’s individual learning needs. Benefits include:
(1) Free initial learning needs assessment
(2) Individually tailored learning and development agenda
(3) International access to political mentors and coaches
(4) Access to the School’s peer support network
Praxis Development for Learning Facilitators
Led by Nico Andreas Heller this programme runs alongside the School's international Peer-Learning Programme (PLP) and is intended for experienced activists interested in fostering a new generation of ‘citizen-politicians’.
Participants join the School as associates and over the course of 12 to 24 months learn the craft and art of learning facilitation, using the Democracy School’s unique learning methodology. Once qualified, they are invited to join the School’s faculty as fellows. Anyone interested in joining this programme please contact the School for further info and an application form.
