Be a Part of International Civil Society Week in Colombia, April 2016​

The CIVICUS Alliance have partnered with CCONG, the Colombian national platform of NGOs (Confederación Colombiana de ONG) to organise the next International Civil Society Week in Colombia next year​ ​in April 2016​.

CIVICUS established International Civil Society Week (ICSW) to provide a platform for people to connect, share experiences and celebrate best practices in citizen action. And in 2016, CIVICUS and CCONG are working together to host ICSW 2016 in Bogotá under the banner “Active Citizens, Accountable Actions”.

This theme connects well with the questions of the implementation, review and follow-up of the post-2015 agenda and the new Sustainable Development Goals, and these are some of the topics that will feature prominently during the Week.

They have launched a call for Expressions of Interest for Partnership Involvement during the Week. And it would be great if your organisations would decide to organise an event during the Week and become a partner of ICSW2016. We are aiming at bringing together around 700 participants.

The call is also available in Spanish, French and Portuguese. Please do feel free to share it amongst your contacts, colleagues and networks. The deadline to submit a proposal is 31 July 2015.
