If you are just beginning to think about taking action on education, you can work your way through the toolkit from start to finish. But you can also dip in to pick up useful hints or activities to help you carry out your existing plans. Plan International knows this toolkit doesn’t cover everything you might need and they’ve tried to sign-post you to other resources where possible.
This toolkit is for anyone who believes passionately in the power of education as a force for good in the world and the right for all children to get a good quality education, no matter where they are and what the circumstances.
This advocacy toolkit, produced in partnership with A World at School and the Youth Advocacy Group of the Global Education First Initiative, has been developed for young people, by young people.
Advocacy is about:
- Giving people a voice about the issues that affect them.
- Building evidence on what needs to change and how that change can happen.
- Positive change in society towards greater social justice and equality.
- Influencing people with power and changing how they think and act.
