BCSDN is happy to invite you to the kick-off meeting of the Regional Community of Practice (RACoP), which will take place via Zoom platform on 30 November (Wednesday), starting from 11 AM CET. The objective of the kick-off is to gather all members and aspiring members of the RACoP group to familiarize ourselves with each other and the community’s purpose and goals. Together we will initiate a common way forward and focus on up-coming activities and plans.
The Regional Accountability Community of Practice (RACoP) was recently launched to enhance continuous learning, improving CSOs and CSO networks’ work across the Balkans, and to advancing our accountability understanding and practices. Accountability can be a lever for change, and with the RACoP group, we offer an opportunity for discussion and sharing of good practices on how we can respond to the negative trends in our region, particularly the shrinking of the civic space.
Through joint discussion and experience sharing on dynamic accountability, the participants will dive deep into their interest in the need for collective action and investment in accountability, building synergies and mutual, horizontal relationships. The meeting will further explain the dynamic accountability approach in detail and explore ways for its implementation in practice, following the BCSDN’s experience.
The online event will be opened by Ms. Anja Bosilkova Antovska, sharing details on the need, the motivation, and the relevance of the RАCoP group, while Ms. Marija Vishinova from BCSDN will discuss the community’s structure, the envisioned way of work and will explain the community’s priorities and actions. As the establishment of the RACoP has been inspired by the Dynamic Accountability Community of Practice (DACoP), the event will be followed by the presentation delivered by Ms. Bao Han Tran Le from Accountable Now (the Global Standard Secretariat). By sharing information on the DACoP foundation and functioning, Ms. Tran Le presentation will also ensure further alignment of the regional (RACoP) and global (DACoP) community of practice to create synergy and enhance shared learning.
