The CCIVS Executive Committee met for the first EC meeting of the year in the Czech republic hosted by INEXSDA. As the EC meeting took place in parallel to the Alliance Technical Meeting it was a rich moment for exchange and sharing with many of the CCIVS members present and also with our Sister Networks – Alliance and NVDA.
Following on from the EC meeting the 5th CCIVS Day took place bringing together over 50 representatives of IVS organisations. The CCIVS day this year was a dynamic event which looked back at our history and then onto the future. In this the 70th year of CCIVS we are looking deeply at the structure of the network and the work we are doing and working together with the members to start to building a new strategic plan for the IVS movement.
The Global Meeting brought together representatives from CCIVS, Alliance, IBO and NVDA. The different IVS networks shared updates and then focused on further developing the IVS for Climate Justice (www.ccivs.org/ivsforclimatejustice) programme and clarifying the importance of the common campaigns for the networks.
