Extraordinary things happen when ordinary people take action in challenging circumstances and times. This sentence from the keynote by Nobel Prize winner Oleksandra Matviichuk expressed well the purpose of the International Round Table Conference (IRTC) 2023 in Leipzig, Germany: gathering activists, NGOs, journalists and think tankers from around the world to learn from one another and exchange their observations and insights.
Our colleague Malwina Talik participated in this event together with approximately 80 other guests. As part of the “70yearsIDM” event series, she also organized a workshop for NGOs on how they can create and implement a digital strategy. .
The IRTC is a democracy and human rights conference that offers participants a non-public, safe space to exchange views on socio-political issues, current challenges and shared values. It is part of the project REVOLUTIONALE, run by the Foundation of the Peaceful Revolution with the aim to strengthen civil society engagement for human rights, democracy and social change.
