New course: How to be a Sphere Champion

We are excited to announce the launch of a brand new course that will introduce you to Sphere, the Sphere Approach, the Sphere Handbook, and the benefits that Sphere can bring to your network and, ultimately, to the people affected by crisis and disaster that you serve. 

The course is available in English, French, Spanish and Arabic.

Whatever your role in humanitarian action – community member, volunteer, search & rescue, military, government officer, aid worker, trainer, or manager of an NGO – you can promote Sphere and encourage your employer, colleagues and partners to adopt Sphere methodologies and to use the Minimum Standards.

By the end of the module, you will be able to explain: 

  • The Sphere Approach to humanitarian response.
  • The usefulness of the Sphere Handbook to prepare, manage and coordinate humanitarian relief efforts.
  • The benefits of using the Sphere Handbook to fulfill a commitment to quality and accountability.
  • The first steps to advocating for Sphere within your network.
