Building capacities of Turkish civil society in Izmir
Experts from ALDA run a 2-days training on networking, communication, storytelling and fundraising addressed to representatives of civil society organizations in Izmir, Turkey.
The activities were organized in cooperation with the association Yayade - Slow Living, and with the hosting municipality of Karsiyaka, both active members of ALDA. Through non-formal learning methodologies including exercises, role games and simulations, participants were offered a set of tool and knowledge to increase their effectiveness in networking with different stakeholders, communicating their associations and activities, and raising funds and support for their work.
Participants represented CSOs working in the field of environment protection, youth, and migration. Participants gladly engaged in the training activities proposed, thus ensuring the days together were a great learning opportunities, for all those involved - including ALDA’s staff.
The training was organized in the framework of Civil Society Exchange Programme, a cooperation between the Sivil Toplum Çalışmaları Merkezi and MitOst e.V., and funded by Stiftung Mercator.
