Who we are
Our international network consist of more than 1000 activists, civil society leaders, researchers and funders aiming to fundamentally rethink and redesign how activists and change agents in civil society can effectively work towards a systemic change (Great Transition).
We invite individuals working in a civil society organisation or those active in a social movement as well as researchers with an academic interest in civil society to become part of the Smart CSOs Lab network.
Please sign up for our newsletter and like us on Facebook. We will inform you about news, workshops and other activities.
