Pełny opis:

This course will support students in delving into the world of philanthropy, social responsibility, and the work of institutions that aim to build development.

The course is divided into two parts—theoretical and practical. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the concept of philanthropy, its possibilities, and challenges during the theoretical part. Students will learn about organizations’ internal work and people responsible for global and local development programs during the practical part. Students will have the opportunity to meet and listen to people who are institutional experts in their fields (part of the course is workshops/meetings with professionals from the United Nations ctr, as well as leaders from local environments (NGOs)).

The course aims to give the tools necessary for becoming a socially responsible person. The need for such people at this point is like never before. In a world where each of us bears the responsibility to the society in which we are, it is not negotiable.

We are responsible for building our awareness and knowledge about the world surrounding us, about regions that may be geographically distant. Still, their impact on our structure is not far off.

Taking inspiration from the World will open our eyes more thoroughly and help us get a bigger perspective on things that matter. As we value respect, tolerance, equality, integrity, freedom of expression, these are the basics for creating platforms where people feel safe and ready for change. It is essential to address them sustainably and reasonably. It is a tool for individuals to express their will, needs, challenges, and emotions.

This is to be a process in which each person will take the path of a broader understanding of a social problem and give the issue a face, emotion, knowledge, and finally find out how a specific person can solve a particular situation based on their interpretation.

The goal is to empower the individual's voice, increase empathy for those who are part of the problem and create and expand social awareness. Understanding a social problem requires constructing appropriate questions to find the backbone that builds a particular social issue.
