General Assembly 2024 Stories

Stories of Hope

Stories of Hope are short videos or written stories that illustrate the theme of the ACT Alliance General Assembly. This year’s theme is  Hope in Action: Together for Justice.  We look forward to receiving many stories from  ACT members, forums, reference groups, and communities of practice, to share the concrete results of our work in the areas of climate justice, gender justice, migration and displacement, peace and human security, and emergency preparedness and disaster response.

We hope they will remind us why we do what we do as ACT, and that watching and reading them will inspire you in your work!

For more information or to submit a Story of Hope, please contact Simon Chambers.
