LEARNING LAB BOOTCAMP: Influencing Private Sector Action on SDGs in India
17-18 October 2019 | Raipur, Chhattisgarh
Engaging with business and the private sector on issues of sustainable development, human rights and accountability is multi-faceted and complex. It requires specific strategies and skills.
Oxfam is developing a learning platform for civil society representatives for engaging with the private sector. Practitioners from India and Europe working on a wide range of issues related to sustainable development, human rights and business accountability will bring their diverse experiences of research, activism, influencing, advocacy and partnerships, and learn from each other.
What is it All About?
The Learning Lab Bootcamp is an immersive two-day workshop for civil society actors and organizations working in Chhattisgarh to learn from each other to influence private sector action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
To ensure that business delivers on the expectations laid out in the SDGs, it is important that civil society groups engage with business to hold them accountable— ensure they do no harm and actively bring positive change in the lives of people through progressive policies. The Bootcamp aims to provide participants different approaches, tools, skills and networks needed to reframe, plan and drive effective strategies to engage business.
What Will You Do?
Over the course of the two days, the Bootcamp will enable the participants to learn, understand and develop strategies to engage businesses using a variety of tools and techniques, through collaborative learning, discussions, group exercises and experience-sharing.
DATE and VENUE: Thursday, 17th and Friday, 18th October, 2019; Raipur, Chhatisgarh.
SPONSORSHIP: Oxfam will bear the costs, including travel and accommodation, for the participants.
The Learning Lab has limited seats and participants will be selected through a rigorous process to ensure a group of committed participants from diverse geographic and ethnic backgrounds.
