We invite young environmental and social activists and volunteers to join our first Activism Weekend in Gozo.

What is the Activism Weekend all about?

TerraFirma is a newly established collective that consists of 15 NGOs. We provide free training to NGOs and volunteers. Our main aim is to equip our civil society, particularly young activists, with necessary skills and knowledge to run more effective campaigns and projects.

During the weekend, you will meet staff and board members of several NGOs in Malta, watch documentaries, join workshops and training sessions, gain new skills, learn new techniques and socialise with other activists.

What will you be learning?

The training will focus on:

  • How to run successful campaigns in and beyond Malta
  • Communications strategies and techniques
  • Best ways to use social media

Training will be given by a professional communications company with vast campaigning and NGO management experience in Malta and abroad.
