International activists have a unique role, and not all come to this work because we were trained in international affairs and diplomacy. BUT we still roll up our sleeves and dig in, and some make a massive difference.
Usually, when we look back at what we accomplished, it is clear that there were some people in there—mentors, teachers, guides—who made all the difference. We just wouldn’t have been able to do what we did, without some kind of direct or indirect training and mentoring.
That all being said, some of us simply don’t have anyone to turn to. And what to do? Today, we are able to “share” our experience, mentor and educate in ways that were impossible without the internet.
With all that in mind, we are curious to know what you think would be the most helpful kind of training for activists focused on impacting international policy.
Let us know what you think, and don’t forget to forward this on to your friends and colleagues so we can see what they think too… and perhaps we can get some more of this specialized training together for you!
Or simply come back here to see who you stack up with other activists, their interests, strengths and quests…
