On each day during CPW we will focus on a different theme. These themes each have accompanying key messages and policy asks. We encourage organisations to use these themes and policy asks during the week, but this isn’t a requirement, and you can use the themes without using the policy asks.
We will soon be publishing suggested social media posts to go along with each daily theme. When they are available you will find theme here, or you can follow us on twitter or subscribe to our newsletter to be notified when they are available.
