Talking Development Episode 8: How civil society can keep up with the speed of change – with Rilli Lappalainen

Wednesday, December 16, 2020

For civil society organisations and NGOs, the speed of change in our external environment can be both exciting and daunting. In this episode, we discuss the nature of those changes and what they could mean for the issues we care about, such as tackling inequalities or achieving sustainable development.

Focusing on the European Union’s shift from development cooperation, or international cooperation, towards international partnerships, CONCORD’s Director, Tanya Cox, and new President, Rilli Lappalainen, discuss how civil society can engage, innovate, challenge and evolve to stay ahead of the game.
