Information About the Event

Title of event
Better Development: A Justice Approach Leadership Training
The next Better Development: A Justice Based Approach training in Vientiane will take place from 4-6 May, 2020. 

United Edge is a social enterprise that supports development and humanitarian workers around the world. Our expertise is in participatory approaches to emergent, reflective, and adaptive learning. This training builds on and fills the gaps in conventional human rights based approaches, as well as building capacity on strategy, programme design, impact and innovation, monitoring and evaluation, critical thinking and reflection, participation, systemic thinking and alternative solutions, and leadership.

The training is relevant for any level and department of staff and brings together a diverse mix of participants from NPAs, INGOs, donors, UN agencies, RC movement, and other development partners. 

Now that 1,000 people from over 400 organisations have participated, we’ve recently conducted a learning review that showed 95% of participants would recommend the training to those working in humanitarian, development, social change, or environmental justice, and 99% of participants were still able to demonstrate putting aspects of the training into practice after 3 months.

The training last year was sold out, so we are asking for interested people to please register at this link as soon as possible to confirm their places. 

United Edge has so far had the privilege of working with over 100 people from over 40 organisation in Laos, and we’re looking forward to exchanging more challenge and inspiration with a new group. More information can be found online at, and you can also check the reviews and testimonials, watch a video about the methodology, and a video introduction to the training.
We are happy to answer any questions! Feel free to write to Frances at
