The Shift, together with OVO, Acodev, NGO Federatie, Trias and Via Don Bosco invite you to a joint event
Collaborations between the private sector and NGOs are an important means of achieving the SDGs. But do you have all the tools to build sustainable partnerships? In this networking event, we want to inspire you and prepare you for future collaborations that will result in lasting positive impacts.
