In coordination with the Ecobrick Convergence in Jogja, at the Sankring Art Space during the first two weeks of 2017, we will be holding an in-depth ecobrick training session from January 12-14.  This ‘Training of Trainer” or ToT session, prepares individuals (who usually have already been ecobricking) to share ecobricking with others.

The Jogja ToT will be lead by Russell Maier and Ani Himawati– leaders in the global ecobrick movement. They have extensive experience mobilizing and disseminating community empowerment projects on the municipal, provincial and national level. Although ecobricks spread on their own, the GEA training by Russell and Ani is crucial help ensure that your movement begins with the best techniques.  Ani and Russell will also show how to use the extensive resources of the Global Ecobrick Alliance to share ecobricks.  These presentations, booklets, animations, movies and more have been crowd-created by ecobrickers around the world and will help your sharing of ecobricks greatly.

The Curriculum

ToT participants learn hands on over the course of three days, from Russell and Ani. The seminar covers four main areas: Why Ecobrick, How to Ecobrick, How to build, and How to Train Others. The seminar is half theory and half hands-on learning. Trainers will literally be getting their hands dirty ecobricking, building modules and standing up to teach.
