On Friday, October 11th 2019, we celebrate innovation and inclusion in development cooperation. Partos & The Spindle organise the Innovation Festival for the 6th time already to highlight innovative ideas in the sector. Together with NGOs, civil society leaders, researchers, social entrepreneurs, funders, government and private sector we come together to share ideas, inspiration & new trends. We believe it is time to connect and work towards an inclusive, sustainable world in which everyone counts!


During the Festival there will be inspiring keynote speakers and innovative workshops on topics as inclusion, diversity and equality. Next to this, there are also some other interesting, interactive features that might surprise you, such as an Integrity Game, Future Transform Roundabout, the Exhibition Market and Innovation Room. In short, it will be a day full of inspiration, learning by doing and networking. A festival to obtain new insights, with a very diverse audience to participate and get inspired. Let's join hands to strive for an inclusive, sustainable and just world with equal access and opportunities for everyone.

***All inclusive***

Everywhere in the world, different groups are excluded in many ways. Mostly the poorest or discriminated groups have no or limited access to healthcare, education, governance, natural resources, social services, security and justice. Development cooperation is all about this: working together on fair distribution and access to these essential needs. To us, this means exploring current challenges and topics in the changing landscape of support for development and social justice. Together we will explore innovative and transformative ways to strive for ***All inclusive ***: a world with equal access and opportunities for everyone. A world where everyone receives an equal package of chances and access, where no one is left behind.
