Civil Society Building Knowledge

The program is sponsored by the Vice Presidency for Countries in an effort to advance the development agenda. The program seeks to include organizations from remotes areas with internet access. The program consists of a webinars series with the aim to build up knowledge and add Civil Society inputs to the IDB Group work.

We believe that building knowledge is a mutual contribution therefore we encourage all interested individuals in our region to join this program of independent sessions. All CSOs (ConSoC and no-ConSoC members), experts and general public are invited to participate. Although the exchanges are technical, seeking to share the latest developments in the matter discussed, it is not mandatory to have an academic background to participate. We especially encourage: community groups, groups of teachers invited to participate and bring questions and concerns from students that allow us to think of effective ways to continue to build knowledge. We also reach out to engage groups of students from schools and universities, professional groups, universities, NGOs and technical groups on the issue discussed to consider their contributions.
