COVID-19 has disrupted the way we carry out our activities to an unprecedented level. States of emergency and lockdown impact directly the activity of community spaces that exist to empower local communities. These community spaces are the kind of physical infrastructure that is central for any network as it provides some of the most meaningful experiences that bring together stakeholders and strengthen the quality of their engagement. A key question in the COVID-19 context is: how can community spaces play a role and also remain sustainable?
The project aims to bring together community spaces that are important for the Bosh Alumni Network (BAN) and partners.
The project consists of a series of online meetings aimed to bring together such initiatives. The online meetings provided the space for sharing insights about the COVID-19 experience and for exploring together options for addressing challenges, envisioning potential contributions to make during the pandemic and modes of operation in a post-pandemic context affected by a significant economic crisis.
The community spaces included in the project are:
The project is financed by the International Alumni Center Berlin.
Departments/units: Society, Crisis and Resilience Program; Policy Analysis and Outreach Department; The International Center for Global Affairs and Post-development (C-GAP)
Topics: Democracy and Democratization, International Development, Philanthropy and Community Development, Civil Society
