The ten-day residential training was announced at the end of August 2022, as it takes at least two months to select the right participants. The training was to be held from October 14 to 23. The announcement was shared on Mehergarh’s social media pages and also with previous graduates and in different groups, in order to bring together a diverse group. The theme for this year was dealing with religion and patriarchy to empower the individual and strengthen democracy, as these are two main areas where a lot of people get stuck in, because of how they have been socialized and based on their upbringing and have a difficult time looking at them objectively.
