The next cross-organisation partner conferences will take place between October 2020 and March 2021, both in the Global South as well as in Germany. In particular, we would like to invite partners from the regions of Eastern Europe and Central Asia to host a partner conference, as only one conference has been held here to date.
If you are interested in implementing a cross-organisation partner conference for weltwärts between October 2020 and March 2021, we kindly ask you to send the completed expression of interest form no later than 8th November 2019. You can find all of the relevant information available for download at the bottom of this page.
Aims, countries and dates
Since 2012, partner conferences have been held in the countries of the Global South as part of the weltwärts programme. These conferences give the German organisations’ partners an opportunity to discuss current developments at weltwärts, play an active role in designing the programme and to network with other organisations.
What are the aims of cross-organisation partner conferences?
Cross-organisation partner conferences in the weltwärts programme have three aims. First, they are intended to promote participation and dialogue between partner organisations and the programme’s central steering body, the Programme Steering Committee (PSC). Second, they enable partner organisations to engage in a dialogue and to network with one another as well as to identify topics where there is a shared feeling that they are of importance for the development of the weltwärts programme. Third, and as an overall aim, the conferences strengthen civil society structures and the partnership-based approach to the programme’s work.
Where else have partner conferences taken place?
There were 34 cross-organisation partner conferences between 2012 and 2019. Conferences in Uruguay and Germany are planned to take place in March and June 2019.
