Workshop: “London Best Practices” – 6th, 7th and 8th July 2016-London
London- From the 6th until the 8th of July 2016, the students from the Masters PMC – Project Management for International Cooperation, Euro-Project Management and Local Development and FRAME-Fundraising Management, Communication, Marketing, Social Media and Social Campaigns took part to the Workshop “London Best Practices”; discovering innovative tools and exclusive case studies that allowed them to experience first-hand some examples of the third sector in the UK.
For the realization of the workshop, we had the collaboration of: Emmanuelle Lacroix, Partnership Development Manager at Cornestone OnDemand Foundation; Giampiero Giacomel, Development Executive at University of the Highlands and Islands; Isabel White, Director at Advice2go ltd; Steven Selvaraj, Advocacy Team Leader South Asia at Christian Solidarity Worldwide; and Federico Aztori as Tutor.
Different topics were touched, but they were all inserted in the UK context: starting from the theme of the Human Resource Management in the Non Profit Sector, to the Grant Writing, Influential Writing and the role of the Advocacy and Lobbying over the single project.
One of the most relevant topic was the “Grant Making Charitable Trust”, discussed by Giampiero Giacomel. A legal form that still does not exist in Italy but that represents an important opportunity for the NGOs of our country.
The experience ended with a visit, on the third day, to the Foundling Museum, that was in the origins a place of care for babies at risk of abandonment. Founded in 1739 by the philanthropist Thomas Coram it saved about 27.000 children before its closure.
Satisfied by the Workshop, we would like to thank for the participation our students, lecturers and our Tutor for making it happen!
