Coordination: NOVACT- International Institute for Nonviolent Action and Foundation for the Future
Duration: two days
Place: Egypt

On 13 and 14 December  the second activity of the training program Organizing social change was held  in Cairo, Egypt. During the workshop, about 30 people participated. Most of them were working on campaigns for the rights of women and organizations demanding the participation of women in political decision and a more equitable society.

Using a participatory methodology, the exchange between Egyptian and Spanish feminist mobilization was encouraged. Moreover, the journalist Antonio Pita explained how social movements should work with the media to increase their impact. Thus, the campaigns of the organizations were analyzed in the training and communication skills were improved, taking into account the new information technologies and the need of joint efforts for mobilization.
