GOAL Malawi/PRB Workshop 2019 for Youth Advocates in Africa (Funded to Lilongwe, Malawi)

Deadline: October 20, 2019

Are you a youth advocate or young researcher interested in learning how to communicate with policy audiences or the connections between population, environment, and development? Apply for the GOAL Malawi/PRB Workshop 2019 for Youth Advocates in Africa.

GOAL Malawi and PRB will host a workshop to introduce active young advocates to the topic of population, environment, and development (PED), and teach them about evidence-based policy communication. Participants will learn how to define policy goals, identify target audiences, and craft communication objectives.

By the end of the workshop, participants will understand how issues such as family planning/reproductive health, natural resource management, conservation, and community development are interlinked. They will be able to translate data and evidence into clear messages about the role PED investments and policies can play in community and natural development. Participants will also leave the workshop with a policy communication activity that they develop, related to PED in their own countries and communities. The workshop will run from December 3-5, 2019.
