Unions 21 supports capacity building in Western Balkans

By Unions 21 | 2 min

On May 21-22, 2024, our Executive Director, Becky Wright, delivered a pivotal capacity building training session in Prishtina, Kosovo, aimed at empowering these organisations with essential skills.

This was the first part of two modules and online training and covered building membership bases and engaging and recruiting volunteers.

Unions 21 is set to deliver a follow-up module in September 2025, focusing on engagement and campaigning. This upcoming training will delve into understanding approaches to connect with members and volunteers in impactful campaigns, ensuring their voices are heard and their causes advanced.

Participants will also take part in online learning through our partnership with the Howspace platform.
