MAGREB CIVIL SOCIETY TRAINED IN STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS SKILLS PDF Print

Date: 16-18 December 2009

Marra CSO2Country: Morocco

Over 25 civil society activists from four Maghreb countries attended a three-day seminar on strategic communications in Marrakesh in December.

The seminar was organized by the London-based Media Diversity Institute, as part of a two-year responsible journalism pilot project in Morocco. The international activists included a wide range of civil society groups including human rights lawyers from Algeria, family planning and disability specialists from Tunisia, and anti-corruption and NGO support organizations from Mauritania.

The Moroccan organizations were primarily from local civil society associations in and around Marrakech, Tahenaout, Ouarzazate, Souira and Tata. Many of these organizations were planning events in the coming weeks, or had experienced problems in getting their messages across to a wide variety of audiences. One CSO based 75 kilometers outside Ouarzazate was attempting to convince men in 10 remote villages on the benefits of allowing their wives and daughters to read, with great success. One activist shared her problems in persuading a Maghreb Minister of Education to accept and act upon physical abuse against children in schools. By working with the activist through the communication tools, international trainer Tim Wiliams reworked the approach so that the activist could approach the minister again with more achievable objectives, which would ultimately move her towards her goals.
