18-20 July 2022 in Bilbao

The Lobbying Summer Academy is an established 4-day forum for training and discussion among leading thinkers, practitioners and academics working on influencing policy and norms.


Regardless of whether you are – or want to become – a corporate lobbyist, a campaigner, an advocate, or you are an engaged citizen, the Lobbying Summer Academy will give you a deeper understanding of advocacy and new forms of participatory politics so as to make your voice more audible.


As nobody teaches you how to become an effective lobbyist of your cause, the Academy brings together a wide community of stakeholders, ranging from corporate lobbyists (both in-house and consultants), campaigners, academics/researchers, activists, foundation representatives, entrepreneurs, students, journalists, elected officials as well as public servants interested in new forms of influence, mobilization and lobbying.


As such it provides an opportunity for all participants to:

– be reflective about their work

– experiment and learn in a safe space to speak about their work

– develop systematic ways to assess impact of their work

– learn beyond our day to day « job description »

– feel proud about their work


The Academy will take place from Monday, 18 July, to Thursday, 21 July, 2022 in Bilbao, Spain. 


The choice of this vibrant city will enable participants to benefit from the world renowned Basque cuisine, its privileged geographical location between the Atlantic sea and the Rioja region, as well as its distinctive architectural landscapes (with the Guggenheim Museum, Norman Foster’s Underground, the towers by Arata Isozaki and César Pelli and the Calatrava’s airport).


The rest of the program will be unveiled soon. Want to get the skills to bring systemic change to your own community? Apply  now by filling in this form.
