Theme

Inclusive Civic Power

We believe inclusive civic power is essential to overcome the global challenges we face. Civic power enables us to foster collective action and build a more just world – a world in which everyone and every place can reach their full potential. Numerous determined changemakers and organisations are striving for inclusion, justice and equality daily. Together, we create the necessary fuel for action and change.
