Training Workshop of Young Civil Society Activists on "Social Media Campaign in Lebanon”

UNESCO Beirut is holding a 3 day training workshop which gives an introduction on social media campaigning and advocacy to the young civil society activists in Lebanon.

The training will be given in Arabic by a team of trainers of the Global Platform, Action Aid, an international non-governmental organization based in Jordan.

The workshop will not only enhance their knowledge and skills in new communication tools and approaches but also enhance their awareness on the social impact of the climate challenge in the Arab region, by selecting cases related to the issue, a major contemporary driver of social transformation.

As the outcome of the activity, the United Nations Development Action Framework (UNDAF) and Millennium Development Goal 7 (MDF 7: Ensure Environmental Sustainability) will be promoted in Lebanon with a more skilled, better networked and thus more meaningful participation of young civil activists and journalists in environment sustainability awareness creating within a wider public in Lebanon and in the Arab region.
