Webinar series - FREE! Advocacy Bootcamp starts April 30

By: Hamish McPherson Published: 10/04/2020

Join the Ontario Council for International Cooperation (OCIC) and Results Canada in this Advocacy Bootcamp Series to strengthen your skills as an advocate for sustainable development and global poverty issues. 

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals will require collaboration across sectors, disciplines, and regions. This includes working with governments and policy makers. Without committed advocacy to our policy makers, we will not see the results we need in ensuring a world free of extreme poverty. In order to achieve this, we need those working in global poverty and allies to see themselves as advocates, with the skills, knowledge, and desire to push for the changes agreed to in Agenda 2030.

Using Results Canada’s advocacy model participants will leave the workshop with:

  • A clearer understanding of what advocacy is and why it is necessary in achieving the SDGs;
  • A collection of advocacy tactics and methods that could be applied to moving their own work forward and the confidence to do so;
  • An overview of some of the best practices, challenges, and opportunities in international development advocacy.

This series is suitable for those completely new to advocacy as well as seasoned advocates looking to refine their skills. 

Participants will receive a workbook with activities and resources to follow along during the webinars and to practice what they have learned in between sessions. 

Participants who complete all five workshops will receive a certificate. Webinars will be held in English only.
