We have the pleasure to announce that the first fully in-person training after March 2020 will take place in the coastal town of Bar (Montenegro) between 21 and 25 June 2021.
The COVID-19 pandemic also pushed our project into the grip of virtual activities that had a much lower impact in comparison to in-person activities. The training in Montenegro will be a perfect opportunity to gather government communicators, especially young individuals that did not have the opportunity to expand their knowledge yet.
Throughout the training, which will be focused on practicality, we will cover general topics about digital diplomacy such as Digital future, Digital Rhetoric, Social Media Analytics, Principles of Public speaking, Identifying and Responding to Misinformation, How to use Disinformation Tools, Digital Campaign Development, Storytelling, Interviewing Techniques, Influencer Marketing, Tips and Tricks, and others.
This training – organized by the Centre for European Perspective, together with the U.S. Department of State – will bring together participants from public relations services of the ministries of foreign affairs, other interested ministries, and state institutions from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Estonia, Georgia, Kosovo, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, and Ukraine.
