How to use this Advocacy Toolkit

It contains background information about the campaign, lists of campaigning and lobbying activities you could undertake at national level, questions and answers, a glossary and a feedback form.

For this campaign to succeed, it is crucial that we all join forces. The NGO Group for the CRC is coordinating the campaign, particularly in Geneva at UN level. As a network, our aims are to strengthen links between national and international advocacy and lobbying actions.
