A conference “Grassroots to Global: Development from Below” will be organised on 18 May by the Global Development Research Group at the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations (CTPSR) at Coventry University. It is open to attendance by academics, practitioners, policy-makers and others from across disciplines, focusing on development practice at grassroots level and implications for global development discourse.
In a rapidly changing world, the notion of global development is changing too. The latest shift in this evolving concept is the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by the United Nations General Assembly, and the associated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), introduced in 2016.
We are pleased to announce that our first keynote presentation will be delivered by Prof Diana Mitlin, Professor of Global Urbanism in the Global Development Institute at the University of Manchester and Principal Researcher at the International Institute for Environment and Development.
Registration is required for attendance at the conference, and can be completed here.
