Influencing Youth Policy – an introduction to advocacy and influence: a European perspective
This session will provide an interesting workshop on how to influence and advocate towards youth policies at national and local level, drawing on examples from the European level. Participants will gain an initial insight with methods and ideas on how to develop advocacy strategies for their NSOs and MOs.
At the end of the session, participants will be able to…
- Gain more insight in what youth policy entails, advocacy at local & national level and why it is relevant.
- Explore what Scouting and Guiding could advocate for, share experiences and best-practices from different countries.
- Have a better idea of what the European volunteers do and how they can support NSOs/NSAs in their external relations work.
- Explore influence areas – where is our influence particularly important for us and in terms of shaping policy? What else could we be doing?
