As part of shared efforts to advance reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, Cooperation Canada acknowledges the historic and ongoing violence committed against Indigenous peoples on Turtle Island in the name of ‘development’ and the abuse and trauma inflicted by colonization, including through residential schools, on children, their families, and communities.
Cooperation Canada has a long history of partnering with members and beyond to deliver thought-provoking events. We are excited to announce that several key partners from the international cooperation sector have joined us to make the festival a huge success.
Following the retreat of NATO forces and the subsequent Taliban takeover of Afghanistan one year ago, living conditions have deteriorated for people in Afghanistan. In part, the current humanitarian crisis stems from long-standing issues: natural disasters, climate change, conflict, and bad governance.
On October 17-20, 2022, Cooperation Canada will host the International Cooperation Futures Festival at the Shaw Centre, located on the unceded and unsurrendered Territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin Nation, colonially known as Ottawa, Canada. The festival’s ambition is to inject new ideas and energy into Canada’s international cooperation ecosystem by re-connecting us while also providing opportunities to learn from and connect with Canadian and global change-makers.
You’ve marked your calendars already, and you’re getting excited for our Festival? Help us make it even better!
Cooperation Canada is pleased to release its International Cooperation Futures Festival Partnership Package.
