  • By increasing its visibility, benefiting from the number of visitors as well as the international media coverage of the event
  • By testing it before diverse audiences, through a pitch presentation, as part of a debate, or by scheduling meetings with other participants at your stand
  • By connecting with potential partners: heads of state and government, high-level representatives of international organizations, directors of NGOs and companies, philanthropists, experts, journalists, etc.
  • You will also be able to share your experience and knowledge with other project leaders and participants from all over the world.

After the Forum, we support the scaling up of 10 of the most relevant and promising governance projects, along four dimensions:
