Each year WECHANGE provides an international space for NGOs to network, discuss, and give rise to new ideas and cooperations. In 2020 civil society actors from Germany, France, Poland and the countries of the Eastern Partnership of the EU (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine) and Russia will gather online to learn and exchange about digital transformation and sustainability.
The Federal Foreign Office, as the sponsor of the conference, intends to initiate networking for issue-based cooperation. The goal of the event is matchmaking between East and West, and we want to reach it in the close collaboration with our partners Goethe-Institut Ukraine and Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (bpb)
The main topics are based on several Sustainable Development Goals implemented by the United Nations in 2015.
Digital competencies for stronger local communities,
Online and offline climate activism,
Conscious consumerism and production
Urbanism and mobility,
Digital non-formal education and art.
WHERE: Online (due to the worldwide COVID-19 situation) streaming from Berlin.
WHO: NGOs and civil society initiatives from the Eastern Partnership Countries, France, Germany, Poland, and Russia.
COVID-19 INFORMATION: Due to the complicated worldwide situation, we change the format of the conference to entirely online. The safety and health of our participants are the most essential issues for us! However, this challenge helps to organise our meeting even more sustainable.
IMPORTANT: The application process is open till the 1st of September, 23:59 (CET)
