The Good Lobby  Advocacy¬† School

Call for Applications

Activists, junior lawyers and young academics from all over Europe are invited to apply for The Good Lobby Advocacy School.

This one-day training event is a unique opportunity to learn how to sharpen your advocacy skills and enhance your voice in the EU and national decision-making processes.

The Good Lobby Advocacy School will take place on:

Friday 23 June 2017, from 9:00 am to 6:30 pm

@ The Good Lobby, Maison des Associations Internationales, Rue de Washington 40, Brussels

Through workshops, discussions and role-plays, you will gain practical skills that will make your voice or that of civil society organisations count in the national and EU policy process. You will learn how to set up a campaign, lodge a complaint or start a European Citizens’ Initiative.

You will also learn how to receive and provide advocacy advice at the EU level by learning about the untapped potential of high-impact pro bono.
