EUCAM writing and outreach course

by Nenad Stojkovic

The Europe Central Asia Monitoring (EUCAM) initiative of the Centre for European Security Studies (CESS) is open to applications for its ‘civil society writing and outreach course’. This new 12-week online course will start on 8 March and end on 4 June 2021.

Selected participants will:

  • Follow interactive classes from inspirational speakers and practitioners;
  • Strengthen practical writing skills (policy papers, proposals, etc.);
  • Improve public speaking skills (becoming a trainer, presentations, podcasts);
  • Expand their network with European and Central Asian NGOers, think-tankers, policymakers, and donors.

The curriculum consists of 12 interactive sessions (one per week) and individual guidance in drafting an article. Upon completion of the course, participants receive a certificate and a stipend of €300. Ideally, participants would follow the course next to their obligations in Central Asian civil society (commitment of about 8 hours per week including contact hours).

We are looking for participants that:

  • Are active in civil society and keen to improve their writing, outreach, training, and project development skills;
  • Have a Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Tajik, Turkmen, or Uzbek nationality and live in Central Asia;
  • Have a good command of English.
