International Civil Society Week (ICSW) is a gathering for civil society to engage in finding shared solutions to global challenges. Using a ‘partnered’ approach, multiple organisations pool their resources to convene a diverse international group of leaders in civil society issues. The global partnership aims to create connections that bring about positive social change, share tools that enhance citizen action, and celebrate people power. Each ICSW is convened under a specific theme that the gathering explores in-depth.
ICSW 2019 inception meetings took place in Belgrade from the 10th till the 21st of September, where BCSDN, Civic Initiatives and CIVICUS discussed the concept and the future activities to take place. CIVICUS Secretary General Danny Sriskandarajah had to opportnty to meet local CSOs, government representatives and media in order to further localize the biggest international civil society event to take place in 2019.
