Storytelling in Interreg communication



Thousands of Interreg projects communicate what they do in a dry technical language. But this makes the information unrelatable and ineffective. Which means that millions of people will never discover all the remarkable work Interreg is doing for their communities.We are masters of formal reporting, but we need to learn how to tell our stories to people beyond Interreg in a way that is more interesting and allows them to connect with the story. Storytelling is an incredibly effective communication technique for doing this, and it is used by all your favorite brands, good teachers, world leaders and public institutions. This certified training will guide you through the logic, the structure and the practical application of storytelling, showing you how to turn your boring project descriptions into captivating project stories.

This edition of the certified training will be fully online, as a support to the Interreg Slam 2024 competition.
