Free Online Courses

Build Up is collaborating with Shift Power for Peace to offer a set of free introductory online courses to help you adapt your work to digital spaces.

You will be able to engage with the courses in your own time by exploring animations, video lectures and webinars, and filling out worksheets to test your knowledge at a time that suits you.

We are working to improve these courses, including improving the experience for mobile users. Experiencing technical issues? Send us a note –

Courses are currently only available in English but will be translated to Spanish, French and Arabic over the coming months.
