This workshop series draws on research and good practices from across Europe to explore how we can engage with policymakers and other stakeholders to shift the dial on obesity policy.
‘Advocating on Obesity‘ breaks the advocacy process down into key steps, from identifying and prioritising key issues, to implementing an advocacy action plan. How can we better understand our audiences and tailor our messaging to engage them and inspire their support?
Each workshop provides an overview from experts and draws on inspiring examples. Participants will have a chance to work in groups to test advocacy tools for themselves, applying their own experience and skills to reflect collectively on new methods of engagement through the case study lens.
Along 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.
The application form to register is now open. Places are limited and priority will be given to candidates whose work is most relevant to the topic and we encourage a diverse mix of applications.
Please note that the deadline for applications is 30th June 2021
