The programme of activities is aimed at training of trainers. Potential trainers include professionals, experts and practitioners in their respective fields of political work, who will be able to share their knowledge within their party organizations, foundations as well as participate in events in the region and beyond. In this regard, the Regional Academy programme will seek to empower local leaders and local organizations, enabling them to implement their own training programmes.
