Bring together experienced policy advocates and those aspiring to make policy change - in your community!
Policy 101 is a knowledge sharing symposium on how to successfully advocate for and make policy. This event brings together experienced policy advocates with those hoping to make policy changes in their field. The aim of the symposium is to learn from the experiences of others – how they became involved, the challenges they faced, and why they were successful.
This tool promotes learning from others' policy-making experiences in the local context. This builds locally relevant knowledge, and local connections and networks.
This facilitation guide is developed and adapted from a pilot Policy 101 event hosted by Sustainable Calgary.
