Civicus World Assembly Blog Post From Rosa Lizarde of the Feminist Task Force
It’s been a busy time at the CIVICUS World Assembly in Montreal where Marta Benavides, Lysa John, Rajiv Joshi, along with other colleagues and interns are engaging in sessions and provocative discussions.
From the opening plenary session, Civil society must lead the way in finding alternative solutions to global problems: Opening of CIVICUS World Assembly to buzz sessions and engagement workshops, the Assembly has sparked dialogue from civil society organizations finding themselves at a crossroads to moving to analyze democratic spaces and global challenges. It seems we as members of civil society are constantly doing this at conferences and meetings anyway---dialoguing, participating in the ubiquitous break out groups, attending session after session ---and just when we get to the nitty gritty, the session ends, and we take the conversations into the corridors or late into the night to distill the essence or some pre-baked conclusion. Same here, but that is a good sign because the sessions have been stimulating good discussion, confrontation and alas, more dialoguing!
