Public Relations Training

Communication is a key aspect to successful projects. The workshop is intended to provide project implementers and partners with tools to further improve the communication work of their projects and the organisations behind them. In practical sessions, the participants work on their communication strategy and receive guidance on writing texts and working with pictures and especially videos. A theoretical part provides input on campaign work and dealing with climate sceptics. An important aspect of the training is the exchange between the projects and mutual learning.

Following questions will be addressed: How do we initiate meaningful multi-stakeholder dialogues and productive collaborations? How to involve reluctant governments or the private sector in such processes? How to deal with the lacking (real or perceived) convening power of civil society organisations? How to deal with climate sceptics?

How can we initiate, design and implement impactful multi-stakeholder dialogues?

We are living in times of complexity and facing challenges that are unprecedented, interdependent and highly dynamic. At the forefront is the climate crisis, a most urgent and complex challenge that requires the collaboration of a multiple actors across geographies, disciplines and levels to work together. Many EUKI projects are supporting such collaborative processes but effective dialogue and working together is often much more difficult than we expect. Public discourse is getting increasingly polarised. Actors that need to work together often share a history of distrust, bring different mindsets and worldviews to the table and see little common ground or incentive for cooperation.

How can we initiate meaningful multi-stakeholder dialogues and productive collaborations under these circumstances? How can we involve reluctant stakeholders (governments, private sector, academia, civil society) in our processes? How can we move things forward despite the lack (real or perceived) of convening power of civil society organisations? These are just some of the questions we will seek to respond to in the training through a mix of theoretical inputs and practical exercises that are talking to the concrete challenges participants are facing in their work.
