ASO members are invited to register their interest for EASO's online advocacy workshop series taking place every Tuesday and Friday 16h00 - 17h30 CEST, starting the week of 29 June 2020.
EASO works to empower advocacy organisations to drive strong, measurable and sustainable actions that will increase attention towards obesity as a chronic relapsing disease, thus benefiting people living with obesity. This workshop series draws on research and good practices from across Europe to explore how organizations can engage with policymakers and other stakeholders to shift the dial on obesity policy.
In previous years, EASO ran an Advocacy Masterclass which brought participants together from across Europe face to face. Now in 2020 they are launching their first Advocacy Online Workshop Series online: a set of engaging, participatory workshops held on Zoom allowing you to connect with colleagues from across our field.
The Online Workshop Series breaks the process of advocacy down into six key steps, from identifying and prioritising the issues, to implementing an advocacy action plan. How can we better understand our audiences and tailor our messages to engage them and inspire their support?
Each workshop explores one step in depth, giving an overview from experts drawing on inspiring examples from their experience. Participants will have a chance to work in groups to test out advocacy tools for themselves, applying their own experience and skills to reflect collectively on new methods of engagement through a common case study.
Together with the EASO Advocacy Handbook, this workshop series will equip organisations working on obesity with the tools, resources and skills to develop and implement their own advocacy strategies and better fulfil their policy objectives.
Places are limited. Please register your interest in participating by emailing [email protected] and you will be sent the formal registration link with a brief pre-course questionnaire.
