EVP Eric Smith conducted the training of 20 participants, taking them on the journey of an active citizen and stressing the importance of conducting sustainable projects with the JCI Active Citizen Framework as guide. Furthermore, participants were organized into groups to practice the Root Cause Analysis of societal problems that will lead to conduct of more effective and sustainable projects.
Through the group exercise of root cause analysis — identifying the effects and causes of the problem, the central cause and possible projects as solutions, participants were able to properly understand the importance of the exercise that will ensure the practicality and sustainability of the project. Through this course’s exercise the participants were also able to identify partners and stakeholders that will ensure further success of their projects. The course ended in a call for being active citizens and that each one of us has the power to create positive change in their communities.
