CONSUMER CHAMPION IS A CAPACITY BUILDING PROGRAMME
FOR CONSUMER PROFESSIONALS PROVIDING TRAINING,
RESOURCES AND NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES

The Programme

The global objective is to provide capacity building activities aimed at strengthening the effectiveness of consumer organisations (including other actors and stakeholders in consumer policy). It also intends to promote exchange of practices between Consumer Professionals. 

Building on the acquis of the previous ”TRACE” programme, Consumer Champion is divided into 5 main activities complementing each other:

  1. web networking platform,
  2. e-learning courses,
  3. class teaching courses,
  4. local training and
  5. expert courses.

The programme serves as a pathway through the different activity levels where participants, tutors/trainers and experts of all levels can add to the synergy effects between the different levels.

WHO IS IT FOR?

The Consumer Champion programme is aimed at all those working within the consumer field. This includes those at volunteer level right up to senior management. We have courses, tools and resources tailored to your varied needs. Our community aims to help all those interested in progressing the consumer movement to collaborate and work together.

Outcomes

We aim to strengthen the EU consumer movement by providing consumer protection actors with skills, tools and knowledge in the field of consumer affairs.

The outcomes of the programme will be:

  • the development of a strong consumer professional network across Europe
  • sustainable consumer organisations
  • better protected European consumers.
