Writing and outreach course

The EUCAM ‘writing and outreach course’ is a three-month online curriculum for civil society representatives from Central Asia. The participants:

  • 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); and
  • 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. The course is concluded with a roundtable where the participants and trainers present their work. EUCAM organises the course together with the European Neighbourhood Council (ENC).
