    ANOTHER CONFERENCE

    IT'S CO-CREATIVE. It brings people together to explore complex challenges and find solutions to them using creative and design-driven approaches. You’ll become part of the CA community and have a role in shaping it.

     

    IT'S ACTION ORIENTED. You´ll join powerful and practice-oriented sessions that go beyond describing theories of change and support the generation of experiences during and after the event.

     

    IT’S FOCUSED ON "NEXT PRACTICES". We’re interested in reflecting on what has worked, and on what hasn’t worked and could work better, rather than showcasing best practices.
