In June 2020, the Collective Leadership Institute (CLI) organized a virtual study tour with the support of EU-Russia Civil Society Forum. Members of the Working Group “Civic Participation for Sustainable Development” gathered to learn about tools and methodologies for building and sustaining partnerships, and had practitioner’s exchanges with German NGOs that are working in different forms of partnerships.

With this webinar, Martin Fielko, Head of Educational Programmes at CLI and organiser of this study tour, presents major outcomes of this virtual trip which are relevant for NGOs working in different fields. We will discuss:

– Background: why partnerships matter
– Toolbox for Multi-Stakeholder Collaboration
– Cases of field visits to German NGOs during the study tour
– Conclusions, further reading, and next steps after the study tour
– Q & A.

The webinar takes place on 4 November at 15:00 CET/17:00 (MSK) in English.

REGISTRATION REQUIRED: to take part in this webinar, please fill in a short registration form via the LINK until 3 November 2020. Participation is free of charge and open for the Forum members, supporters, experts, and everyone interested.
