Volunteer Training – An Introduction to Advocacy

February 9, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Group 1 Advocacy: 2:30-5:30

How do you make your voice heard? How do you advance the strategy and aims of Birth Forward with governmental institutions? How do you inform and educate society, rendering citizens, bearers of your Organisation’s goals? What are ethical, legal, and credible tools to use to make decision makers listen?

All the above will be touched upon in a three-hour seminar, during which, we will introduce basic advocacy concepts and methods of engaging in effective, credible advocacy campaigns. We will explore the benefits of advocacy, links/differences with the notion of lobbying, as well as the risks involved, through best practices in the field.

Facilitator: Katerina Yennari is an expert on advocacy who has extensive experience and knowledge on the subject having worked with and within governmental institutions as well as NGOs for many years.
