The Trust at the World Forum for Democracy - Part 1
Last week Building Change Trust organised a group of NI-based VCSE representatives to attend the World Forum for Democracy (WFD) in Strasbourg.
The WFD is an annual three day gathering organised by the Council of Europe and describes itself as: “a unique platform for political decision-makers and activists to debate solutions to key challenges for democracies worldwide. By identifying and analysing experimental initiatives and practices, the Forum highlights and encourages democracy innovations at the grassroots and their transfer on a systemic level in order to strengthen the foundations of democratic societies.
One of the people who came along with the Trust was the NI Foundationation’s Allan Leonard.
Here he is, alongside the Trust’s Paul Braithwaite, being interviewed in Strasbourg about the various civic activism projects going on in Northern Ireland.
