On July 8th at the Royal Dublin Society we held our final conference a celebration and reflection on the past five years of The Advocacy Initiative. The event kicked off with details of our synthesis document 'Pulling Together' which brought together all the activities, learnings and outcomes of The Advocacy Initiative from 2010-2014 which is summarised in a blog by our Chairperson Kieran Murphy.
Following that the seven legacy partners that will be taking over a number of our initiaitives spoke of their hope for these project under their guidance, while a series of Ted Talk presentations looked at the impications of the learnings of the Intiaitive which you can view here:
