WHAT COULD YOU SHARE WITH OTHERS?
WHAT COULD YOU SHARE WITH OTHERS?
Do you already use a participatory approach within your organization or with the communities with which you work? Do you sometimes face challenges in encouraging community participation in activities or changes? Would you like to learn from others who are using participatory approaches and have experienced some measure of success with community participation in their activities?
If so, then this event is for you! During the event we will grow in our participatory mindsets, share participatory techniques and tools that we have created or found helpful, and wrestle with problems or challenges we have faced in increasing stakeholder participation. Click for more information.

Question/ What is the 'LEAD Community of Practice'?
Answer/ It may be better to ask 'WHO ARE the community of practice?'! In short it is a 'community' of individuals, teams, organisations and networks all grappling with questions around language, education and development. The focus of the community is working with marginalised communities, often marginalised because of their unique culture and/or language, and it is facilitated by LEAD Asia, a unit of SIL International in Asia.
Q/ I don’t work in Asia, am I still able to attend LEAD CoP events?
A/ Yes! The LEAD CoP is open to anyone interested in integrating issues of language, education and development. The majority of attendees will be located or working within Asia and so there will naturally be a focus on appropriate strategies for this region. However, the broader the range of participants the richer the discussions, and as such we warmly welcome attendees from anywhere in the world.
Q/ Is there a registration fee?
A/ Yes, a fee is charged for each event to cover the cost of meeting room hire, resources and lunch and snacks. The exact amount depends on the event and the venue. Participants are responsible for their own accommodation, travel and meal costs (except for lunches during the event, which will be provided at the venue for all participants).
Q/ Do you have funds to help me attend LEAD CoP events?
A/ No. Unfortunately, since we do not have external funding for events, LEAD Asia does not have any funds to help participants attend.
Q/ Why do you hold events at Bangkok Christian Guest House (BCGH)?
A/ The simple answer is cost. We recognise that participants at our events have many pressures on their budgets and attending events outside of their normal place of work can be prohibitively expensive for many. As such, we do all we can to reduce the cost of our events to make them accessible to as many people and organisations as possible. Principally this means trying to keep the venue hire and lunch/snack costs as low as we can, while maintaining a satisfactory level of service. Recognising that many participants will appreciate the convenience of staying at the venue, accommodation costs are also a significant consideration. Currently, BCGH provides the best balance of all these factors while continuing to enable us to deliver a high quality event. We are, however, always open to suggestions as to alternative venues so please do let us know (via the form below) if you have any suggestions.
Q/ How do I register?
A/ A link to a registration form will be made available a few months before each event. Keep an eye on the event information (by clicking on the links above) or sign-up to the LEAD mailing list by filling in this form:
