Mission - The mission of the Activist Training & Development Working Group (ATDWG) is to train and support Green activists, both to develop awareness and understanding of key issues & to support and advance their ability and confidence in a wide variety of roles they may wish to take on.

  • Develop training opportunities which support and enhance Green activists' abilities to undertake any tasks or roles which they would like to fill;
  • Organize training & discussion on key issues and debates which Green activists have to navigate;
  • Support counties in developing locally-based trainings as desired;
  • Support GPCA in building and maintaining a culture dedicated to the training and development of its activists at all levels and in as many channels as is reasonable.
