ACIC Symposium - People + Power + Participation: Engaging for Effective Development
From June 14-16th, the Atlantic Council for International Cooperation (ACIC) will hold its Annual Symposium at the Coady International Institute in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. Looking to the Istanbul Principles on CSO Development Effectiveness as a stepping off point, this year’s symposium, People + Power + Participation: Engaging for Effective Development, will explore current conditions and practices in the international cooperation sector and how organizations and individuals in Atlantic Canada can participate in effecting global change.
You are invited to join us for the keynote speech, being held at Dennis Hall, Coady International Institute, St. Francis Xavier University on Thursday, June 14th at 7:00 pm. Keynote speaker, Dr. John Gaventa, Director of the Coady International Institute and VP of International Development at St. FX, will lead off the event with an exploration of how to engage in effective development as global citizens. John Gaventa is a political sociologist, educator and civil society practitioner with extensive experience of research, training and organizational leadership across the globe.
