Attitudes towards NGOs - where is the connection broken?
When and Where
10 Mar 2022, 16:00 – 17:00 EET
About the event
In this issue of the Online Talk series, we focus on the philosophical question of why, how and where the link between the civil sector and society as a whole is broken. How do we explain the fact that in all the meaningful work that NGOs do to achieve their missions, the general attitude towards this type of organization is disproportionately low?
We will reflect together on some of the following issues:
- Shyness or incompetence - why is society not convinced of the importance of civil society organizations?
- Which language do we speak - that of an NGO or of the ordinary person for whom the NGO is created?
- Is there encapsulation in the sector and how to have self-confidence outside it?
- What is more important for NGOs - elitism or accessibility?
We will also look for answers to a series of practical questions to improve our ability to reach people, to make our messages audible, to increase the visibility and visibility of our work and results.
- Why is the ability to ask questions important?
- Brand or projects to communicate?
- How do attitudes change through communication?
