[EFA Capacity Building] Online webinars

 Registration is closed for this event

A webinar series for EFA Members and their member advocates to learn online about Governance, Project Planning, Membership, Communications, Fundraising and Advocacy. 

Do you have what it takes to be advocate for the patients' needs but you are missing impact? Do you feel you could improve some skills to make a change for patients in your country? Are you very good in something but a bit weak in another one and feel that this is slowing down the development of your organisations? Then join EFA’s capacity building webinars!

This series is for EFA Members, and their membership. 

These trainings are meant to support you to have a strong presence, structure and voice at national levels in order to translate them into European policy and action and so that together we can tackle the biggest political issues on the horizon.

What is the format of the webinars?

  • This year’s training will be online sessions called webinarsmore, which you will be able to follow from your home or offices.
  • We will address six topics composed of 2 webinars per topic, a first one of 1h and the second one lasting 1h30.
