Spokesperson training: Housing & Health

Saturday 9th September, 2023 @ 10:30 am 4:30 pm

Interested in becoming a Medact spokesperson on economic justice or climate issues?

Giving comments and broadcast interviews to the media can seem daunting, but health workers speaking out can be a powerful way to get our messages across to huge sections of the public.

We are building a network of Medact members who have the skills and confidence to speak to the media about the ‘cost of living crisis’ and the housing crisis, and how these issues are inseparable from climate, economic and health justice! Confidence is key, and this training will help you to feel prepared and ready to speak out with impact.

Join us for an in-person one-day training at the Medact offices in London. This training will be led by our Communications Lead, TJ, who will be joined by our campaign lead for Economic Justice.

The training will go through the fundamentals of speaking to the press and preparing for interviews to make sure you nail your messaging. We will also do practice interviews, with feedback from your peers. Lunch will be provided!

We also have a budget to subsidise travel to this training. As it is a limited budget, we cannot fully fund everyone’s travel. If you would like to access this travel subsidy, please indicate this as well as an estimate of your travel costs in the application form.
