Call for Ideas for Online Workshops

As part of the conference, we host a series of online workshops in the month before and after the event. The aim of these workshops is to foster the exchange and discuss ideas how to promot sustainable, equitable partnerships. We invite researchers, project coordinators, students as well as practitioners from development cooperation and business to submit their workshop ideas.

Researchers and practice partners interested in organizing an online workshop are invited to submit your proposal before 8th March. The workshops ideally have a duration between 60 to 120 minutes and promote discussion between the participants. Workshop formats can vary from presentation series to round tables or other innovative forms of online exchange. We will support you in setting up the workshops.

We will select a variety of the most convincing proposals, discuss with you how to combine similar proposals, and set a date for your digital workshop.

Please us if you have any questions.
