Our alliance is composed of organizations and individuals committed to social and environmental justice. To achieve this, we advocate and communicate the need for Zero Waste and the protection of the environment and vulnerable communities. However, communicating ideas or advocacies can only go so far without related experience and/or a strong communications strategy.
As a means to develop and enhance the expertise of our members on communications and communication strategies, GAIA Asia Pacific’s Officers Training and Fellowship offers capacity-building workshops or full four-month Communication Fellowships to GAIA Asia Pacific alliance members.
However, these are not your grandparent’s communication courses. We know Digital Media – from social media apps to computer graphics and videos – carries as much punch as traditional media. As such, our courses give as much importance to Social Media Metrics and Visual Activism as much as we value the impact of traditional media such as Op-eds, News Releases, and Press Briefings.
And finally, the icing on the cake – GAIA Asia Pacific members do not only get access to these exclusive workshops but also get the chance to be mentored by some of the region’s leading experts – renowned journalists, Zero Waste advocates, communications professionals – and get to establish friendships with others in the network.
So hop on and stay tuned as we put together more exciting workshops, training, and fellowships for you!
