Open Urgent Call! – Advocacy Labaratory this February

Creating a long-term advocacy plan to decolonise International Volunteering Service.

February 25th to March 2nd 2024
Brussels, Belgium

The Advocacy lab wants to bring together a group of around 20 participants who will be able to develop a long term advocacy strategy for CCIVS and its member organisations and/or are really eager to work on the implementation of the advocacy strategy.

In the lab we will take time to :

  • Have a recap of all the work that has been done by the Advocacy team regarding 2 external and 2 internal issues : changing the narrative and
    promoting climate justice is targeting IVS organisations. Addressing visa barriers and advocating for decolonising funding mechanisms is targeted towards decision and policy makers.
  • Take a look at the results of the analysis of the general questionnaire filled out by many IVS organisations globally.
  • Make a map of the stakeholders we need to address in order to achieve our advocacy asks
  • Meet some representatives from EU institutions as well as people from different networks and/or organisations working on similar issues
  • Build the framework for our advocacy work for the next 2-3 years
