As we celebrate Human Rights Day on December 10th, we are reminded of the work that activists are doing across the EU and the world to defend our rights and freedoms. And recent events in Europe, like last month’s election in the Netherlands, have reminded us of the importance of their work.
On this Human Rights Day, we give these activists, campaigners and everyone else working to grow public support for causes related to fundamental rights and freedoms a gift – and a powerful new tool: our new knowledge hub e-learning course, ‘Foundations of Persuasive Progressive Messaging’.
Turn heads with a new approach to campaign messaging
This course helps activists take their campaigns to the next level. The 7-module course walks you through each step of building a comprehensive, persuasive campaign narrative, beginning with an in-depth look at how and why people form opinions about issues.
Across the seven modules, 'Foundations of Persuasive Progressive Messaging' explores:
- How values and worldviews shape people’s opinions
- How to reach the ‘moveable middle’ and convince them to support your cause
- Common messaging mistakes campaigners make and how to correct them
- Step-by-step guide to creating a persuasive narrative
- How to respond to lies from your opponents
- The importance of choosing the right messengers and picking the right tone
- How to convert a winning narrative into communications materials to use in your campaigns
- Many real-world examples to take inspiration from
- Plus much, much more!
The knowledge hub
The Liberties knowledge hub is a free e-learning platform for activists and campaigners working on human rights and other progressive causes. Launched last year, the knowledge hub features courses geared towards changing how campaigners shape their public-facing messaging in order to grow support for the issues they’re fighting for.
Early next year, we will launch further courses on other topics, like how to use the Charter of Fundamental Rights as a basis for litigation. All courses are video-based, each module within a course takes only about an hour to complete, and diplomas are awarded upon completion of each course.*
Check out the Liberties knowledge hub and enroll in your first course today.
* - Diplomas are not certified or accredited by any academic institution or authority.
