International cooperation

12 -13 September 2019

Caritas Europa (CE) is organising a one-day event for Members Organisations to exchange their experiences implementing international cooperation and development actions and to reflect on the work of the network.

This exchange will aim at:

  • Enabling a space for CE Member Organisations active in the field of international cooperation and development to come together to share their experiences with each other;
  • Listening and dedicating time to consider practices related to this area of work, both problematic and promising;
  • Listening and considering commonalities across the network relative to the topic;
  • Proposing a potential process for reflecting on future financing models by CE/Caritas Internationalis (CI) member organisations to different CI regions;
  • Considering a possible future direction for CE-Secretariat to focus on with its members in the next Strategic Framework.

The event will begin with an optional common dinner on 12 September 2019 at 19:00. The one-day meeting will happen on 13 September 2019, from 09:00 to 16:00 (CEST).
