On the 30th and 31st of January 2014 the First European Conference on Citizen Initiatives for Global Solidarity will take place in Brussels under the header ‘Mobilising European Citizens for Global Development’. Hosted by HIVA, the conference aims to explore the presence and position of Citizen Initiatives for Global Solidarity in European countries, as well as to create a knowledge and network forum for all stakeholders. The conference therefore wants to gather participants who are professionally or voluntarily involved in activities who steer, fund, support, coordinate or study citizen initiatives.
The conference programme takes two full days, consisting of an opening plenary session with a keynote and presentation of a European mapping of citizen initiatives, followed by interactive parallel sessions on priority issues as well as spotlight country sessions. The programme includes sufficient occasions for informal meetings and networking. For more details visit the conference website.
