Promote Global Unity
CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation
Around the world, individuals and organisations, large and small, face similar problems in their efforts to create a more just world. The impact of everyone's actions can be magnified if, instead of acting alone, people work together. Opportunities for coordination, sharing information and partnership are particularly valuable for organisations and individuals from developing countries. However, the costs of attending a global event can be beyond them.
The CIVICUS World Assembly takes place once a year, bringing together civil society activists and their partners from around the world to share ideas and experiences. Your gift will sponsor a civil society delegate from a developing country to attend the 2007 World Assembly in Scotland. The sponsorship will provide for their fees, meeting materials and meals. As a result of this gift, the delegate you sponsor will have the exciting opportunity to meet with other members of civil society from around the world, learn from them and develop joint projects. The World Assembly celebrates the energy and creativity of civil society working collectively in spite of all its diversity to address issues of justice and equality. It is an opportunity to promote untiy and reaffirm our commitment to acting together for a just world.
