If your Member Organisation has faced the issues of generation change and transfer of knowledge, attracting new members and keeping them engaged in your work, structure and forming internal documents, then this call is for you! CDN keeps taking down barriers for members to participate and contribute to its activities. This time we would like to diverse our capacity building work through the webinar series.
During this series, we will try to fill in the gaps and explore the best practices for organisations to further develop a sustainable approach to (1)membership, (2)transfer of knowledge and (3)structures and documents. All modules are composed of online trainings, games, and follow-up activities in between each episode. In addition, we will be hosting experts who will guide us through each module and constantly give feedback to tasks given within webinars.
Webinars are going to take place in the following order:
25th of June – Membership and Recruiting
The first webinar will concentrate on membership management with a structural approach to it. What are the methodologies to make our membership wider? How can we make the green idea more popular and attract the activists and supporters? What to do with new members, how to include them in the process of organisational work that already has been started? We will discuss these and other subjects and put concrete goals that we will have to accomplish before the next webinar.
August- Transfer of Knowledge
At this, second meeting we will briefly sum up the results of our activity in the period between 1st and 2nd webinar, what has been done in each of the MOs, what are the DOs and DON’Ts and what has a space for improvement. We will sum up this into a recommendation pack and after this start the second part of the webinar – Transfer of Knowledge. We will discuss how the process is taking place in our organisations and how this process should ideally look like. What are the existing practices in other organisations? How do we keep the activists busy and motivated at the same time? How do we make sure the knowledge is shared among every person in the organisation? How can we make our organisations inclusive? After this, we will set up a timeline for actions that have to be done before the next webinar. Till the 3rd webinar, the communication will be continued on an online platform.
December- Structures and Documents
In the last webinar, we will talk about the structures that organisations can have; we will also discuss the role of structures, importance of different political platforms, IRPs, bodies of the organisation, different positions (spokespersons, treasurers, etc), the professionalisation, and growth of the movements.
