International Civil Society Week 2019

Virtual Participation: Be part of the conversation!

Civil Society leaders and activists from across the globe are gathering in Belgrade, Serbia for ICSW 2019 from 8- 12 April.  But, we know that this is just a small representation of activists, civil society changemakers, and campaigners out there. We’re committed to connecting delegates at the event with civil society and media across the globe. If you can’t make it to Belgrade in person, here are few ways you can participate virtually.
