A system with shared power between development organisations and donors with partners at the receiving end of assistance. Partos wrote a dream paper about it. Director Bart Romijn will discuss this paper with representatives of various organisations during the Wereld Café on 20 January, organised by Wilde Ganzen and Vice Versa.

Bottlenecks & Creative Solutions

During the Wereld Café on January 20th, this dream paper, bottlenecks and creative solutions will be discussed with representatives of Dutch organisations and international partners that receive assistance. How do they view envisaged changes, and would this work in their daily practice? Which best & worst practices are at hand and what are some of the difficult questions that need to be addressed?


Guests include Moses Isooba (Director Uganda National NGO Forum), Zohra Moosa (Director Mama Cash), Maite Smet (Coördinator Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action) and Bart Romijn (Director Partos). Presentation is done by Ama van Dantzig. This webinar is of interest to professionals working in the field of international cooperation, both in the Netherlands and internationally. The working language of this webinar is English.

Sense of urgency

This meeting is a follow-up to the World Café of 25 June, about the why behind shifting power. Senior civil servants Kitty van der Heijden and Birgitta Tazelaar of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs talked to civil society representatives from Ghana and Kenya about the meaning of this ambition for all actors: from grassroots organisations to policymakers. It emerged that shifting power is a process in which everyone has a responsibility. The sense of urgency for this topic was widely shared. The follow up question was: but how?
