How do we really learn from others? Emotions and concrete examples presented in a personal and authentic way are well suited to influence appreciations and trigger action. Personal stories are credible and give voice to people lacking power otherwise. A story told with lively sound, images and videos is entertaining and stimulates reflection also across different cultures, languages and professional backgrounds. This is the common vision of the digital stories you will find in this iBook: They were created to support learning, reflection and change in development cooperation. The stories give voice to individuals working for the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) somewhere in the world, be it in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe, at the UN or at the SDC Headquarters.
The topics range from organizational development to good governance, migration and many other fields of activities for development cooperation.
The contents may mainly speak to specialists for international cooperation but they serve a wide interested public as well. Dive into these stories and enjoy!
