Ton Nicolai, 
EUROCAM

EUAcademy September 2020 >

The quality of the presentations was amazingly high, not only in terms of content but also in terms of interaction between presenters and participants. The personal and group exercises were an essential complement to the presentations and were highly instructive.

- Ton Nicolai, EUROCAM

Flaminia Tacconi, 
Client Earth

EUAcademy September 2020 >

The EU advocacy training was an eye-opener in many ways. I feel I can now move to another level of EU advocacy making. I greatly appreciated all the practical tools shared to gather intel and be able to do proper advocacy.

- Flaminia Tacconi, Client Earth

One of the best trainings I have ever attended, full of practical examples and tips. Quite intense and full of knowledge that will take time to digest.

Miranda Ruchtie, 
ECCH

EUAcademy September 2020 >

The training has given me a broader understanding of the whole EU process of regulation and legislation.  It will certainly have a positive and constructive effect on my way of working in the future.

Tammy Vallejo, Solidaridad

EUAcademy March 2020 >

Super essential training if you are working on advocacy or are planning to influence EU public policies. The training helped me to see "behind the curtains" of the EU institution so as an organisation you know when, how and with whom to engage in order to pursue the public interest that you represent.

- Tammy Vallejo (Solidaridad)

Eugenia Andreyuk,
ADC Memorial

EUAcademy March 2020 >

The training was beyond my expectations. It combines both the general information about the overall functioning of the EU with in-depth practical tool and tips. Highly recommended for anyone involved in EU advocacy.

- Eugenia Andreyuk (ADC Memorial)

Luisa Fondello, Caritas Europa

EUAcademy March 2020 >

Very good dynamic training methodology and very good trainers (good public speakers, able to capture attention and engage participants, very knowledgeable and able to provide real-life simple but emblematic examples...). Very valuable tips and tricks from the speakers from the EU institutions, as well as very good training materials

- Luisa Fondello (Caritas Europa) 

Till Ehrmann, Finance Watch

EUAcademy March 2020 >

Well-structured training that touched on all essentials of EU advocacy. The external guests gave highly informative insights into the day-to-day reality of those who are targets of lobbying and advocacy, and explained how to best approach them. Almost too little time for all the content!

Alejandro Garcia Esteban,
ECCJ

EUAcademy March 2020 >

As a beginner in the EU bubble, this was a very useful training. It helped me understand better how the EU policy-making process actually works in practice. It taught me how to better identify and approach the relevant stakeholders in my field of work and how to better formulate and adapt my message.

- Alejandro Garcia Esteban (ECCJ)

Julia Christian, Fern

EUAcademy March 2020 >

The training was really useful, even though I have been doing advocacy for a few years, I learned many new things and came back with lots of ideas for my campaign. The trainers have many years of experience doing advocacy in Brussels and are full of advice & ideas. Highly recommend it even to people who've been in Brussels for a while!

- Julia Christian (Fern)

Muriel Unden, Oxfam

EUAcademy October 2019 >

The trainers spotted exactly what is relevant for an advocacy officer to learn; no window-dressing, the training goes straight to the point, deep into the details of decision-making - how it really happens.

- Muriel Unden (Oxfam)

Léon Mokeni, RCN J&D

EUAcademy October 2019 >

Le succès de la formation réside en ce qu’elle a réussi en peu de temps à attiser mon désir de m’engager, de prendre position et d’oser. Les formateurs ont su relever le challenge de rendre digeste une matière dense et complexe en peu de temps." 

Sarah Vaes, Oxfam

EUAcademy October 2019 >

The training inspires, motivates, gives tools and strategic insights to do EU lobbying but also makes very clear that it takes a strong investment (in time and capacity) to do it well.

Sylvia Obregon, CIDSE

EUAcademy June 2019 >

Very good facilitation methodology

Julien Jacquot, GERES

EUAcademy June 2019 >

Everybody should have that understanding of the EU!

Kelsey Perlman, Fern

EUAcademy June 2019 >

You really know your stuff and you share the knowledge. I have plenty of ideas on how to improve my own campaigns

James Royston, 
World Animal Protection

EUChanger Consultancy 2019 >

Whilst working for Publish What You Pay, EUChanger helped design a multi-year advocacy and outreach strategy for our organisation, relating to a complex issue that was not at the forefront of EU policymakers' minds. The team's ears were always close to the ground, so they (and we) were  able to be ahead of the game, identifying opportunities to influence and to build support for our priorities. Their attention to detail was impressive. I would happily recommend EUChanger for anyone looking to gather intelligence about or influence the EU institutions.
