What is campaigning/lobbying?

  • A campaigning/advocacy goal cannot be type ”worldpeace”-> it has to be focused, precise

  • A good goal is based on analysis ->

    • Societal analysis + political analysis (HR analysis!)

    • Resource analysis + possibilities of co-operation

    • Research on the topic: is it available, is it concrete, is it usefull -> do we need to do it by ourselves (if yes, how?)
