Today was the last day of this week spent together in Chile. After the conference, each Ban Advocate has followed the CMC and ICBL workshop sessions, following each one needs and interest, choosing between different topics for improving the campaigning work at home.
During four days, the Ban Advocates have been trained along with other campaigners on sessions of: strategies for working with governments in affected countries, advocating on victim assistance, strategic planning, working with the media…
Those four days have also been the opportunity to better know each others, and to brainstorm on ideas to celebrate the entry into force of the Convention on 1st August, as well as discussing campaigning activities on the roadmap to the first meeting of the States Parties in Lao PDR, next November.
To conclude the campaigners’ forum, each one has enjoyed the wrap party, by taking a last glass of even pisco sour or Chilean wine, before heading home with memories of the nice time spent in this welcoming country of Chile!
