In 2020, we went virtual due to the impacts of the pandemic. In doing so, we were able to gather more members of the AGLN community than ever before with 500 leaders and 150 youth participants from 34 countries. As the pandemic continues to impact communities everywhere, we will be hosting the Action Forum virtually once again so that we can come together again at a time when it’s most needed. This year's program embraces the proximity we each have to our local communities, increases access for people to participate, and creates new opportunities to engage in learning, practicing, and sustaining collective efforts.
In addition to classic seminar dialogues and inspiring plenaries, new virtual spaces will allow you to find collaborators, explore issues important to you, and spark innovation as you build your own capacity for collective leadership.
