CIVICUS International Civil Society Week, Johannesburg
The Embassy of France partnered with the Delegation of the European Union and a number of other EU Member States to take part in The CIVICUS International Civil Society Week held in Johannesburg for the first time.
To celebrate South Africa’s 20th anniversary of freedom and democracy, CIVICUS and its partners gathered change makers from around the world at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg from 19-25 November 2014. 500 civil society leaders and activists from more than 100 countries attended and tried to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges.
The Embassy of France enabled the South African partner CSOs currently funded through the Civil Society Development Fund (CSDF) to participate in this major event.
