EU Guide for NGOs

The Civil Society Contact Group published a training handbook "Making your voice heard in the EU - A guide for NGOs". It is specifically designed for 'newcomer' NGOs and activists that are in the process of establishing a European strategy. It does so by providing information on EU institutions, the way European NGOs work, as well as lobbying tips and examples of EU level campaigns. It does not aim at being comprehensive but rather at giving a first insight in the EU labyrinth and how to find your way. Download it in English, French, German, Hungarian, Latvian, Polish, Portuguese and Slovene. Now also in Bulgarian, Romanian, Estonian, Italian, and Spanish at http://act4europe.horus.be/code/en/materials.asp?Page=223&menuPage=223
