Alumni reunions Similar difficulties The Technical Training for the Alumni (12–15 September, 2012) was the first meeting of this kind in which Alumni from Ireland, United Kingdom and Latvia took part. It was dedicated to the mobilization of Polish communities in Poland and abroad. The participants worked on the marketing strategy of the previously submitted projects and reflected on how to use them to mobilize their local communities. The workshops were complemented by interactive lectures in the area of cooperation with the media and the mobilization of local communities based on the experience of the “Your vote, your choice” campaign co-run by the School for Leaders.

It turned out that the leaders from other environments have to deal with similar difficulties. I used the experience of the people I met at the training. I am impressed by the content of the training and the ability to suit the needs of a diverse group of participants. Artur Banaszkiewicz, Ireland
