How can we create inspiring and inclusive cooperations that give voice to the marginalized (e.g. women, children, refugees, animals, trees, water). How can we stimulate our organisations to become an inspiring and impactful force in society? Uniquely combining three different angles – theology, public administration and communication – this course strengthens the impact of yourself and your organisation, by deepening drives, constructing valuable policy tools and training dialogues that connect and inspire.
