EDA’s advocacy training programs

EDA’s advocacy team will help you or your group develop
a training program specific to your issue and region.

Mask Group114r24

EDA advocacy training provides participants with a deeper understanding of how we’ve arrived at our current problems. This is followed by a uniquely designed advocacy plan for each group’s bioregion.

Even a cursory look at the news reveals the effects of population growth combined with excessive resource consumption. Add climate change to the mix and you get biodiversity loss, resource depletion, environmental degradation and eventually, social
unrest — the perfect storm of overlapping crises. It’s clear we have to do something, and soon.

Our advocacy team will work with you to achieve system change through legislative initiatives for rational resource management. The Advocacy team has developed two types of training programs.

  • 8-part series of seminars

As part of the Education team’s series of Friday seminars, we have presented an 8-week series titled: “Advocating for our common future: Creating a sustainable world through legislative action”. This series will be offered again. Please see the events page for dates.

  • Customized intensive training

We’ve also offered intensive training that prepares self-organized groups to speak with their elected officials on issues of economic democracy. These half or full-day programs can be virtual or in-person.

Advocacy training designed for your bioregion

EDA has been devoted to both participatory and representative democracy. Talking to your elected representatives allows you to influence legislation that provides for the equitable distribution and sustainability of resources in your community. Here are
some examples of the EDA advocacy intensive training program.

Asheville, NC

EDA research teamed up with EDA Advocacy to develop a program directly related to the local bioregion’s sustainability needs. Based on water usage in the Upper French Broad River Basin, we developed data that conference participants could bring to their elected representatives to advocate for legislation designed for better water management in the area.

Oakland, CA

EDA’s third annual conference was built around its advocacy intensive training program. The focus of this program was the sustainability of the San Francisco Bay Watershed, specifically a pending bill to restore watersheds across the State. This training included background on resource sustainability issues and practice lobby sessions. Equipped with data on the Bay Area, conference participants visited the offices of State Assembly members to engage their support for the watershed bill.
