CIVICUS World Assembly

The CIVICUS World Assembly is a large gathering for civil society where near 1000 delegates from over 80 different countries meet in order to strengthen citizen action. The event will be held for the third year in a row, in Montréal, from the 5th to the 7th of September 2012. It will be preceded by the CIVICUS Youth Assembly, where hundreds of young people will reunite and work with other participants.

As the host of the event, Institut du Nouveau Monde plans to promote the event in several ways, especially by sharing information through the communities and organisms from both Quebec and Canada.

In order to foster the Youth Assembly, will you be willing to support us in our approach by sharing information regarding the CIVICUS World Assembly 2012 through your networks, newsletters, social media (Facebook, Twitter), and any other communication medium at your disposal?

Reflection & Appreciation!

Now with 2 of our 3 projects over, it’s time to reflect on our experience! PUYO Youth Development Director, Doly Begum, is currently rolling out evaluations where team leads, chairpersons and executives can obtain feedback from their fellow peers! In doing so, we would think back on our experiences with one another and help each other improve for the future!

In case you haven’t gotten enough of NIU! and PAT, here are some photos and video updates!
