International Civil Society Week 2014

University of Witwatersrand, Braamfontein Campus, Johannesburg

To celebrate South Africa’s historic 20th anniversary of freedom and democracy, CIVICUS and its partners will gather 500 change leaders from around the world in Johannesburg for International Civil Society Week 2014.

The week will feature more than 20 events organised by leading civil society organisations, addressing the theme “Citizen Action, People Power”.  International Civil Society Week 2014 will culminate in the CIVICUS World Assembly and Nelson-Mandela-Graça Machel Innovation Awards ceremony.

The global partnership that will make up the International Civil Society Week will be bound by a common aim to connect the forces that nurture positive social change, share the tools that enhance citizen action, and celebrate inspiring examples of people power.

Space is limited to 500 delegates, and most events will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
