Training workshops on EU Advocacy

Target group: Civil Society Professionals, Activists

Year: 2018

Advocacy is an invaluable tool for influencing policy and policy-makers and making a difference where it matters most. Our advocacy training focuses on the EU level, aiming to provide the essential tools for building an advocacy strategy, developing alliances and making a difference on the policy issues that matter to participants.

It was created for people new to EU level advocacy and civil society organisations looking to prepare and implement EU advocacy strategies and campaigns. It combined theoretical and practical activities so that participants actively test their newly acquired knowledge and make it part of their everyday practice.

During 2018, ECAS also provided relevant tailor-made training services for organisations.
