SDG Watch @ “Global Perspectives on the future of Civic Space”

SDG Watch Europe attended the 2016 Global Perspectives conference in Berlin on “The Future of Civic Space”. The conference focused on the growing range of threats and restrictions being imposed on “civil society space” – or to explain simply – the right of people to assemble, network, empower themselves and have the opportunity to determine their own choices and future.

These threats and restrictions include surveillance, intimidation, legislative and financial barriers etc. SDG Watch Europe used this opportunity to point out the incredible potential of the new global Sustainable Development Goals framework to open up new spaces for civic engagement.
