ICAN Action Academy 11-14 September 2014, Berlin

August 20, 2014

ICAN UK is delighted to be joining campaigners from across Europe for the ICAN Action Academy in September 2014, an event for dedicated activists between the age of 18 and 30. Ninety participants from 15 European countries, who are working with ICAN or our partners towards the joint goal of banning nuclear weapons, will be given the opportunity to participate in an intensive training in Berlin.

The ICAN Action Academy is a four-day intensive training seminar for young campaigners and those who want to become campaigners. We will meet in Berlin to learn about all the relevant aspects of successful campaigning against nuclear weapons and for an international treaty that bans them. We want to equip our participants with the relevant knowledge about project management, press and media work, lobbyism, campaigning strategy, public actions, fundraising and public speaking that are all aspects of creating a successful campaign.

12 young British campaigners have been selected to take part in the Action Academy.
