Interactive Workshop 1 - Unlocking the potential for partnership: Civil Society leaders working session
The Civil Society leaders working session be held on Monday 20 May from 10:00 to 13:00 at room CC9. It focused on actions the OECD and partners can take to promote and enable an environment for civil society, which is currently the most critical challenge that civil society organisations face, impeding their basic license to operate and people’s ability to participate in civic life. In this scenario, the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 17 emerges as a unique opportunity to involve more actors through global and multi-stakeholder partnerships. The three-hour session involved approximately 100 participants including civil society representatives and government delegates from the OECD Ministerial Council Meeting.
