Side Events: 33rd International Conference

Call for proposals for side events and the Humanitarian Village

While not being part of the conference’s formal agenda, side events are smaller events in the form of workshops, debates, round tables, etc. that complement the official proceedings by providing participants with time to have informal exchanges and opportunities to network, showcase successful approaches to tackling humanitarian issues, test ideas, find new partners and inform and inspire each other. Side events should relate to one or more of the conference’s themes or subthemes. They should be interactive, practical and action-oriented, looking at innovative ways to address humanitarian challenges.

Although side events are not subject to the Movement’s statutory requirements or procedural rules, participants should not engage in controversy of a political, racial, religious or ideological nature, and discussions must not conflict with the Movement’s Fundamental Principles (humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality).
