Civil Society Forum on BRICS Summit
June 19 / Online

20:00 - 22:00 CST / 14:00–16:00 CEST / 9:00 - 11:00 BRT
The official BRICS Civil Forum, scheduled for July 3rd-4th in Moscow, aims to bring together civil society (CSO) representatives from BRICS nations and its five new members. Meanwhile, recognizing the limitations placed on civil society in many BRICS countries, we propose an alternative online forum to convene independent CSO representatives from the region.

Objectives of the Civil Society Forum:

  • To provide a platform for independent CSO representatives from BRICS countries to exchange open opinions.
  • To collectively assess the current state of civil society within BRICS nations.
  • To formulate a joint statement reflecting the concerns and aspirations of independent CSOs in the region.
  • To present this joint statement to the official BRICS Civil Forum in Moscow.
    Forum Agenda
