During the Partos Innovation Festival on October 11th, The Spindle and The Broker launched their newest publication ‘Joining Forces, Sharing Power: Civil Society Collaborations for the Future’.
Joining forces, sharing power is a follow-up to the 2017 publication Activism, artivism and beyond: inspiring initiatives of civic power. This new report showcases the many ways in which civil society has managed to bridge gaps, overcome differences and work together in creative and transformative ways, with likely, as well as unlikely, partners.
Partos and The Spindle joined forces with The Broker to create the book. With the support of CIVICUS and contributions from Africans Rising, we have selected examples of collaborations that are particularly inspiring or innovative. At the Partos Innovation Festival Yannicke Goris, Knowledge Broker and author of the new publication, handed the first copy to keynote speaker Tulika Srivastava, whom she had interviewed for the book.
The question central to the book is: how can we make better use of energy, creativity, resources and competencies organisations and individuals want to share in their strive for a better world. By joining forces and sharing power opportunities arise for inclusive and sustainable development. Money is no longer the dominant factor in this: it’s about equal collaborations and connections between people, organisations and communities.
Over the course of six chapters, readers are made familiar with the most creative and transformative ways of cooperation taking place today. In Joining forces, sharing power you can learn how females entrepreneur in Delhi, an Indian institute of technology and Estonia are working together towards more inclusive economic development; discover why a world-renowned clothing brand is publishing books on grassroots activism; and be inspired by the energy of people and organizations looking to establish meaningful connections and share their time and resources for a common goal.
