The ICSW is an annual forum co-organized by CIVICUS and regional or national platforms that brings together NGOs from all over the world. “Is a key global gathering for civil society and other stakeholders to engage constructively in finding common solutions to global challenges. For the first time in more than 20 years of international convening, CIVICUS will hold its flagship event in the Pacific region.” The theme of the forum is: Our Planet. Our Struggles. Our future.
“Our Planet: Our planet and its bio-diversity are under threat, and it is often excluded people that face the most severe and unjust consequences. Events in this track will explore how innovation and good practice are vital to realizing environmental sustainability, the Paris Climate Agreement and Agenda 2030.
Our Struggles: A global crisis of democracy and a clampdown on people’s rights are affecting the progress of our social justice struggles. Events in this track will explore trends in civic space and political participation.
Our Future: Civil society is organizing and responding to the crises facing us in powerful new ways to create the future we want. Events in this track will consider how we can support the next generation of leaders and build solidarity across diverse movements, mobilizations and initiatives.”
