BRI in Civil Society Dialogue
This project invites civil society organisations from China, Southeast Asia and Europe to enter a dialogue on the environmental and social implications of the Belt and Road Initiative. It is aimed at enabling spaces of exchange and learning for civil society organisations and at improving the sustainability of Belt and Road Initiative investments together with stakeholders involved.
Civil society dialogue across cultural and political borders improves organisational capacities, cooperation potentials and action-oriented research towards the common goal of sustainability. The project offers a threefold exchange experience with a workshop in China, a fieldwork period in Southeast Asia and a conference in Europe. Moreover, it gives civil society organisations the opportunity to develop their global strategy for a rising China and to strengthen their voices on a global governance level.
The project officially started on 1 May 2020 and is funded by Bread for the World. More updates and information on the project are going to follow soon.
