Call for "Snapshots"

Ingrid Srinath
CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation

The State of Civil Society 2011 is a new initiative of CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation and it will be the only annual report on the health and state of civil society, and the enabling environment for civil society, authored by the civil society sector itself.

From jailed human rights defenders in Belarus to anti-corruption campaigners in India to disaster relief workers in Japan and in East Africa to angry protesters in Tahrir Square to the activists involved in the Occupy Wall Street movement, we want to capture the tales of the individuals that witnessed, participated and commented on the events that defined 2011.

We want your tweets, facebook posts, quotes from blogs and publications, opinions and pictures!
The best snapshot entries will be featured in the State of Civil Society 2011.

- Each snapshot must be no more than 100 words.

- Multiple entries per person are allowed.

- When submitting your entry please indicate your name, country and if applicable your organisation.

- The entries must fall within one or more of the following categories: (1) civil society and crisis (2) participation and activism (3) civil society space (4) civil society funding (5) civil society and the search for legitimacy, transparency and accountability or (6) global governance processes.

- The snapshots featured in the publication will be selected to reflect a wide cross-section of perspectives from across the globe.

Also, send us your short video clips and audio recordings of a maximum of two minutes so we can share them with our global network in the lead up to the launch of the State of Civil Society 2011!
