  • Introduction to the 2019 Innovation Report
    14th January 2020
    3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This event is the virtual launch of and case study presentation from our 2019 Innovation Report. We are excited to introduce this to a new audience and be joined by two of our inspiring case study contributors, IREX and Civicus.

The International Civil Society Centre and JustLabs launched our first ever Innovation Report on “Civil Society Innovation and Populism in a Digital Era” at our Global Perspectives conference in Addis Ababa on 30th October 2019. We are now running this additional virtual ‘launch’ session as an opportunity to introduce more sector colleagues unable to the framing and findings of our analysis, and hear more in depth from two of the compelling international civil society case studies featured in the report:

  • Firstly, we will briefly present the key definitions and six overall recommendations drawn from the total of 14 case studies from civil society organisations on four continents around the world.
  • Programme colleagues from IREX will then share key insights from their highly successful Learn 2 Discern citizen media literacy training approach which, after significant success in Ukraine, has since been scaled to a number of other contexts, including Indonesia, Jordan, Serbia, Tunisia and the USA.
  • Finally, Civicus will share reflections and emerging findings from its pioneering Resilient Roots programme, working with a network of 15 partners around the world to test whether strengthening accountability to primary constituents can help build organisational resilience in the context of external threats and attacks to civic space.

This will be held Tuesday Jan 14th – 09:00-10:00 East Coast US time/14:00-15:00 London time/15:00-16:00 Berlin time. Registrants will be sent a link to join the webinar in early January.
