 Registration is closed for this event



EFA Young Patient Ambassadors Training: Public Speaking and Advocacy

25th October 17:00-20:00 CEST


The EFA Young Patient Ambassadors Training is part of EFA’s Capacity Building. This training is organised in connection with the European Allergy and Asthma Youth Parliament set up in 2020. The training will provide young patient ambassadors with the necessary skills to engage at the European level through the Youth Parliament. The second part will build on the training held in June, but it is not mandatory to have attended the first training to take part in October.

The objective is to improve participants’ advocacy and public speaking skills to influence EU decision-making, essentially to advocate change effectively. 

Target audience: This training is open to 20 young patient representatives and healthcare professionals below 35 years old.
