Applications are now open! - Leadership-in-Action project: re_action for climate 

Are you passionate about fighting climate change and helping the environment? Are you interested in learning how to effectively mobilize your community? Do you want to put your leadership skills in service of climate action?

Apply now to the re_action for climate programme, a leadership-in-action opportunity for Laidlaw scholars to fight climate change through concrete action! Learn about the details, what you can expect from the experience, and apply on the programme’s website: pages.makesense.org/reaction-laidlaw-2021/

What is re_action for climate?

re_action for climate is a 6-week full time experience where scholars will learn how to mobilize communities, utilize their leadership skills and build concrete actions within their communities to fight climate change. The programme will run remotely from June 28th to August 6th. Selected scholars can expect to apply and develop their skills in Leadership, Community Mobilizing, Project Management, and Climate Action.

 The re_action program was built by makesense, an international organization that works with citizens, social entrepreneurs and organizations on positive impact projects, as an emergency response program during the pandemic. Today, re_action is an innovative tool for community building and action. The programme has mobilized over 80k people worldwide and it now aims to empower 20 Laidlaw Foundation Scholars. Through the leadership of the 20 selected Laidlaw Scholars, we are hoping to mobilize over 100 volunteers during the summer by guiding groups of 15 people each through a creative experience using design thinking and community mobilization tools.  

👉 Are you interested in applying? Do you want to know more?

Hello! My name is Nikol and I look after the Laidlaw Scholars Network.

I am originally from Kazakhstan and I studied Human Sciences at UCL. My final research explored the potential effects of design on patient wellbeing in hospitals, and I also took modules such as Ethnographic Documentary Filmmaking, Anthropology of the Built Environment, Art in the Public Sphere, and other less interesting-sounding things :)

Drop me a line if you have any questions about the site, or if you'd just like to chat! I am always down to meet interesting people, so let's get [virtual] coffee ☕️
