A Spotlight on Changemakers
We believe that sharing the stories of the changemakers doing the heavy lifting across the region has the power to identify opportunities for connections, cross divides and communicate their impact. There is amazing work already underway that needs a light shone on it so that we can learn from experience and amplify efforts via new relationships.

We are particularly interested in stories of inter-cultural and inter-sectoral collaboration.
If you know of an event or initiative that should be profiled, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
