Event description

Description

Dear citizen, you are invited to …

…lively conversations about how we can collectively reimagine International Non-Government Organisations (INGOs) as places of international solidarity, justice and compassion that are capable of addressing gl

Without blame or finger pointing at individuals or organisations, let’s use our role as citizens to start conversations about what INGOs could look like and how they can be supported to transform into institutions that challenge the global operating systems that maintains global inequality.

You don't need experience or knowledge of NGOs. This conversation is for you if:

  • You are a citizen who supports international development and NGOs but recognise that in its current form, it’s failing to address global inequality

  • You are wondering how we can have changes that are far more profound than those which just focus on local initiatives – recognising the historical, political and economic beliefs systems that drive inequality

  • You recognise that most people who work in international development and NGOs are caring and passionate about making a difference to people’s lives. How can they be supported to be more radical?

We will discuss what gives us hope, explore the deep cultural beliefs that lie beneath ‘development’ and share ways our struggles for equality and economic justice are connected to those in the global south.

Dates

This conversation is repeated twice. Please choose a date you would like to attend.

Tuesday 22nd May from 7pm to 8.30pm

Tuesday 26th Jun from 7pm to 8.30pm

Please note that these are citizen’s conversations, exploring what’s around and what’s possible, without experts to provide the ‘right’ answers. There will be a short presentation on the issues, followed by small group conversations.
