Convergence Spaces

The convergence space concept is designed for the ACSC/APF 2017 to provide space for organizations, groups and networks working on interrelated/similar issues to come together and collectively discuss a common concern which they could advance/support/develop as a regional campaign and share alternative practices that address those issues within that convergence space. The focus is built primarily around strategy sessions in order to develop core output/s for each convergence space. The idea is also to encourage inter-organizational efforts and contribute to strengthening peoples’ solidarity and movement building.
