Network #2: Political impact – Skills for political representation of interest

Representing and voicing the interests of groups in vulnerable situations is a core task of civil society organisations in the social area. It is not an easy task, and successful political impact require skills and cooperation. In this network we will share knowledge and practices on how to impact policy successfully.

As a member you will get new cross-Nordic networks and allies in the Nordic countries. You will hear about inspiring advocacy examples, new tools and share your own.  


It is relevant for persons who work with advocacy, Public Affairs and Public Relations. But also for practitioners who experience and see the need for regulatory reform or practices and want to learn more.   

All members are expected to take part in four network meetings and be ready to share all kind of experiences. Side meetings are optional.
