Under the banner of “Active Citizens, Accountable Actions”, ICSW 2016 will feature more than two dozen events organised by leading civil society organisations and will cover 4 crucial themes: peace, inclusion, enabling environment and participation.
The CIVICUS Youth Assembly to be held on 24 April will provide youth and youth organisations with an opportunity to exchange best practices, strengthen collaboration and build capacity.
It will be followed by 3 days of events organised by our partners from around the world. In addition to plenary sessions, workshops and meetings, the Week will also feature documentary screenings, art exhibitions, and local cultural activities. The experiential component of the programme will allow participants to reflect on Colombia’s past and present struggles, and how these relate to their own struggles for social justice and peaceful societies at home.
The week will culminate in the CIVICUS World Assembly and the awarding of this year’s Nelson Mandela-Graça Machel Innovation Awards.
Active Citizens, Accountable Actions
In demanding rights, civil society also has a responsibility to promote positive social and political change, while encouraging other actors to do the same. The following programme tracks explore the different barriers and opportunities to achieving the aspiration of active citizenship underpinned by accountable actions.
