Årsmötet 2018

ForumCiv is a member-based organization. Our members are Swedish organizations and together we are Sweden’s biggest platform for civil society. We are united in the objective to reach global sustainable development. ForumCiv facilitates forums for sharing experience and developing capacity: we can act as a voice carrier and represent members in relevant national and international forums.
