Civil Society Facility South > Training of Trainers - Online Training Lab (July - October 2017)

The Civil Society Facility South (CSFS, based in Tunis) is pleased to announce the launch of the “Call for Application” for its Online Lab for Training of Trainers (TOTs) for Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) from the Southern Mediterranean.

This Online Lab project is designed to strengthen the CSOs dialogue capacities in 10 countries. The new online TOT builds on the experience made during the previous programme 2016 / 2017.

The main objective is to support regional networks of TOTs that could develop trainings for CSOs in their countries and provide them relevant tools to advance on national and regional policy dialogue agendas. This “CSOs Policy Online Training Lab” is organised by the CSF South (technical assistance of the European Commission).

The Online TOTs Training Lab is meant to provide tools to gain expertise on:

  • Policy Advocacy

  • Drafting Policy Papers

  • Policy Research

  • CSOs Strategic Planning

All applicants must be a member of a Civil Society Organisation from the Neighbourhood South Region (as defined here): "The EU considers CSOs to include all non-State, not-for-profit structures, non-partisan and non –violent, through which people organise to pursue shared objectives and ideas, whether political, cultural, social or economic. Operating from the local to the national, regional and international levels, they comprise urban and rural, formal and informal organisations. They include membership-based, cause-based and service-oriented CSOs. Among them, community-based organisations, non-governmental organisations, faith-based organisations, foundations, research institutions, Gender and LGBT organisations, cooperatives, professional and business associations, and the not-for-profit media. Trade unions and employers' organisations, the so-called social partners, constitute a specific category of CSOs."

Eligible Countries: CSOs applicants from these countries: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia and Syria are eligible to apply for participation.
