We need to build capacity in EFPC and encourage young PC professionals/academics to become more engaged and active.

We want to discuss on this theme in details, address problems, develop new ideas and practices.

With the international development sector facing an increasingly difficult external environment, there is an urgent need to find creative new ways to make change happen. Working with young people offers an exciting opportunity to achieve this goal. By injecting energy and vitality organisations can bring a new generation of supporters on the journey to becoming active citizens for years to come.

 

But how?

Our vision is our dream.

Our vision statement demonstrates what EFPC "believes"... with regard to the ideal conditions for our members, member organizations, communities... Our vision statement demonstrates how things would look like if the issues important to us were completely, perfectly addressed.

So let's discuss: Is EFPC Vision Statement clear enough? Is it all shared?

Is it an inspiring vision for our potential members encouraging them in engaging EFPC?
