Participated

Advocacy & Activism Training. An intensive 4 hr training session for anyone interested in running campaigns/becoming an advocate. This training is based on increasing your skill set and as such is not issue specific. This will be an introductory training and so is aimed at those who don’t have a huge amount of experience already. Sessions will cover what is advocacy, how to run a campaign, how to work with the media, public speaking and how to lobby politicians. Our aim is to have external trainers where possible for each session.
