The Good Lobby  Advocacy  School

The Good Lobby Advocacy School is a unique opportunity to learn how to sharpen your advocacy skills and enhance your voice in the EU and national decision-making processes.

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.
