This Remote Participatory Video online course is a 2-week programme specifically designed for key personnel in NGOs, government, UN agencies and private sector organisations.
Participants will experience and learn how to facilitate a remote participatory video process. The online training will be very practical; each week will follow a cycle of learning by doing, feedback and reflection. By the end of the training, participants will have completed a participatory film that is ready to be shared for an online screening event.

IMA is proud to partner with Simon Koolwijk (Facili2transform) and Ralf Otto (MomoLogue) to combine their technical know-how with our extensive international development experience to deliver our Remote Participatory Video course.

Simon Koolwijk has more than 10 years’ experience in conducting participatory video interventions and 25 years’ experience in facilitation of multi-stakeholder and complex processes. Simon is both a filmmaker and (online) facilitator and has combined both areas of expertise into participatory video interventions involving people's voices in humanitarian crises interventions, social accountability processes, youth development, biodiversity and nature preservation projects.

Ralf helps organisations in developing a capacity for collective listening. He has accompanied organisations working in crisis-affected contexts for the past 20 years, and concentrates on human-centred and listening-based approaches to programme design, monitoring and evaluation, as well as learning. Ralf is a facilitator and trainer working with film since 2013. He is the co-initiator of ReflACTION, a worldwide initiative, promoting people-centred ways of working.
