Call for Proposals to Host CIVICUS World Assembly for 2006, 2007 and 2008

CIVICUS is inviting bids to host its next three World Assemblies. These are major international meetings of civil society leaders and activists aimed at creating a space where a diversity of civil society voices can be heard exchanging experiences, challenges, successes and dreams and, most importantly, concrete ideas for a more equitable and just world. The CIVICUS World Assembly was previously organised as a biennial event in a different venue on each occasion. As a result of its success over the years, CIVICUS now wishes to organise the conference as an annual event in a fixed venue for the next three years. The tentative dates for the 6th World Assembly are 25-29 March 2006. The 7th and 8th are scheduled for the end of March 2007 and 2008. Click below for the rest of the announcement.

The CIVICUS World Assembly host can be an organisation, a municipality, a local government authority or a government. The deadline for letters of intent is 15 July 2004. Completed bids should be received by 15 September 2004. Full details concerning the bid are available on the CIVICUS website at MS Word: and PDF:
