Training for campaigns, in Copenhagen

26 October 2011

The four-day training on how to plan and run effective and strategic campaigns has just come to an end. A group of young activists from the YFoEE network, visited our great hosts and friends NOAH (Friends of the Earth Denmark) in Copenhagen.

A total of 18 participants from 11 countries took part in the training, which has led to the development of exciting new plans on how to continue the Push Europe campaign (YFoEE's current climate campaign) and a Food and Agriculture campaign, due for launch in 2012, targeting reforms to the EU's Common Agriculture Policy and against factory farming. Following feedback from the event we hope to run follow-up activities to give the chance to more people from YFoEE groups to get involved and learn campaigning skills in 2012. Watch for more news this year.

This event and training was made possible with with support from the Youth in Action programme of the European Union and  the Council of Europe European Youth Foundation.
