Global Perspectives

Every year, leaders of national and international civil society organisations gather at the Global Perspectives Conference with people passionate about doing social good, to exchange ideas and experiences, make connections and address the world’s most pressing challenges. 

In 2023, we offered a free and online series of discussion in partnership with West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI), Civicus, CyberPeace Institute and ICVA. The conference under the title “Moments of Truth”  took place on 9 November 2023. See the highlights below:
