CIVICUS WORLD ASSEMBLY 2011: Register before 30 March and get 60% off
The CIVICUS World Assembly is back! It will take place in Montreal for the second consecutive year, on 10-12 September 2011. Through more interactive activities based on a rich and participatory programme, the event will convene international keynote speakers as well as regional, national and local stakeholders and include an exceptional celebration marking the 10th edition of the World Assembly.
Under the overarching theme of “Acting Together for a Just World”, the annual theme of the 2011 World Assembly is Civil Society and Global Decision-Making: Doing it Better.
More and more frequently, policy decisions are being made at the global level yet have their real impact at the local level. Populated by governments, multi-lateral institutions, multinational corporations and large international NGOs, voices are missing from the global decision-making arena. The voices of the local people and grassroots organisations need to be heard at the global level, on issues including human rights, climate justice, development effectiveness and women’s rights, if we are going to achieve a more just world.
In 2011, the CIVICUS World Assembly will bring together civil society representatives, from the North and the South, from large and small organisations, to talk about civil society’s input into global decision-making and how we can do it better. By engaging all facets of civil society as well as representatives from other sectors in participative dialogue, we can explore how to ensure that the voices of the people are heard in global forums.
