More About the Field Based Immersion

Participants will be exposed to several civil society actors in Bangkok, Phnom Penh and Manila (+ surrounding areas) that are actively leading cutting edge change on the ground, especially through the organizational platform of social entrepreneurship. Themes for learning are optimized in the field through workshops and lectures with experts, learning engagements with communities and immersion across various organizations. Participants will be expected to synthesize the contrasts, sharpen micro and macro critical thinking skills and hone their ability to empathize deeply with communities they would like to shape. Participants will also have the opportunity to generate and present personal social action plans to apply upon returning home from the field.
