D4D on the Road Workshop
This year, the workshops will introduce a systematic framework to help participants identify solutions to problems they are concerned with and then build winning strategies to make change. Through small group exercises and role plays, with trainer feedback, the daylong session takes students from researching a problem to analyzing solutions, developing strategy, building people power and meeting effectively with decision-makers. Participants will leave with concrete tools, which they can put to use in a wide variety of public policy settings and efforts.
