In its Accelerating Inclusive Power Shift the Centre seeks to support International Civil Society Organisations (ICSOs) and the wider sector with tools, best practice, and discussion space to become more inclusive and power-balanced.  

The Curated Conversations are a series of safe online discussion spaces aimed at enabling exchange of best practices. This year, the series covers the themes of equitable partnerships, ICSO mandates and donor roles. The first curated conversation of 2022 tackled the role of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in shifting power, with a focus on anti-racism. 

This upcoming conversation takes place in collaboration with the Luc Hoffmann Institute and will focus on the future mandate and role of ICSOs, sharing reflections and lessons learned from the Institute’s “The Future of Conservation NGOs” initiative. The initiative launched in 2020, seeks to engage a diverse set of voices to explore innovative pathways for conservation NGOs that can meaningfully benefit people and nature in a rapidly changing world.  

The event will explore how ICSOs can challenge themselves to co-create more equitable and future-relevant mandates and investigate the effectiveness of new partnership models that represent stepping stones towards shifting power in the sector. Particularly, the conversation will foster the exchange of case studies based on the potential future roles of ICSOs as “request-led support providers” and as “supporters of more spiritually-led conservation”. During the curated conversation, experts from sustainable development and conservation ICSOs will share insights from their novel approaches to partnerships. The conversation will further offer a space for exchange reflection on the common challenges faced by ICSOs across the sector in defining their future roles.
