Global Perspectives 2023

There is collective pressure to do more in the sector to bring about change, so this year’s open, accessible and free online event will challenge civil society organisations and their partners in how fast, fundamental, and futures-focused they are actually transforming.

Throughout the day, we will feature panel discussions that will look at the future of civic space and accountability, explore innovative ways through which the sector can become truly locally-led, and openly debate how we will be able to keep the promise of the SDGs.
