Training of trainers
We’ve enhanced our flagship bystander intervention trainings with trainer tips and tricks – so that anyone can be a facilitator! Our Training of Trainers are remote or in-person sessions designed to challenge, engage and dive deep. We use interactive tools, (virtual) action rounds and multimedia formats to create an open space for exchange. New trainers walk away with the framework, the practical tools and the pro tips to enable them to train others in their organisations or communities.
Our bystander workshops focus on topics including:
- Street harassment
- Unconscious bias
- Bystander intervention
- 4D methodology
*We are currently able to offer our trainings to Amsterdam-based educational and community organisations for free. For all others, please request a quote through our contact form below!
"Fairspace showcased their expertise in building free and fair public spaces with a group of Oxfam and partners’ policy and campaigns staff from all over the world. Our session with Fairspace was very engaging! Participants were truly inspired and asked a lot of questions on Fairspace’s way of working, successes and challenges. Fairspace works in a professional and respectful manner, quickly winning trust of the participants. Working with Fairspace, Oxfam and partners benefited from the experience and can integrate the lessons learned into their own work, especially in the work related to changing social norms and ending violence against women."
"Fairspace is distinguished by its focus on society as a whole. It is not only aimed at perpetrators and / or victims. Behavioral change on the street requires a culture change: street harassment is not acceptable. Therefore, one of the helpful pillars of their work is bystander intervention. They have now reached many people."
"During this Training of Trainers session Fairspace used interactive exercises that responded to current events and offered a perspective for actions bystanders can take. The useful tools and tips were a valuable addition to the skills of the peer educators, which they now use in working with young people to prevent violence."
Upskilling teams and management
Our customised Training of Trainers workshops equip teams with the content and facilitation skills to embed these critical sessions into their organisation. Building capacity within teams is a key part of ensuring long-term uptake and culture shift.
Fairspace has trained more than 500 people in our bystander intervention workshops, which offer creative tools and practical strategies in an interactive (and dare we say fun!) format.
Fairspace founders Laura Adèr and Eve Aronson have won the 2019 MensenrechtenMens award for their commitment to tackling violence against women in public spaces. The prize was awarded on December 10, the International Human Rights Day.
