Advocacy means giving people support to have their voices heard:

it is a way to help individuals and communities to understand their rights and to express their views.

CCIVS as an international network promotes member’s projects worldwide and empowers young people, volunteers and activists to stand up and speak out about their actions for positive change.

Over the years, the CCIVS has developed an expertise in advocacy work built through several projects on topics such as freedom of movement, soil protection and recognition, equitable volunteering practices among others. 

All advocacy is, at its core, an exercise in empathy
