Access important information from the 2011 CIVICUS World Assembly
During this year's CIVICUS World Assembly we saw a convergence of themes - from climate justice to development effectiveness to democratic space - with different movements from around the world coming together towards a common dialogue of sustainable, inclusive development based on human rights.
Civil society is starting to make progress in breaking down silos across sectors, themes and regions. The energy and motivation to find sustainable solutions for a more just world was palpable at this 10th edition of the Assembly held from 10-12 September in Montreal and attended by over 800 delegates from 100 countries.
Many delegates from plenary speakers to youth participants have shared their reflections and interpretations on the event on our web platforms. For those who joined us in Montreal, read these and reflect on how closely they resemble your own experience. For those who could not join us, these pieces are a great way to find out what happened and add your voice to the discussion. All this important content is FREE – don’t forget to share with your network to push that change-making wave even further.

On behalf of CIVICUS and the Institut du Nouveau Monde, we thank all World Assembly delegates for your passion, insights, solidarity and sheer hard work.
We are overwhelmed by the appreciation we are receiving from participants, speakers, sponsors and well-wishers for the 10th CIVICUS World Assembly. The success of this event is collectively shared by the critical mass of individuals who contributed to the debates! In the weeks and months ahead we would love to hear from you on how the many new initiatives, partnerships and collaborations that germinated at the Assembly are progressing.
We look forward to seeing you at the next CIVICUS World Assembly in Montreal from 5-8 September 2012.
