The 9th CIVICUS World Assembly is in Montreal from August 20-23, 2010. CIVICUS is a network of civil society organizations working to strengthen civil society and citizen action worldwide. At the Assembly they are discussing democracy, human rights, citizen media, how to forefront youth voices and more.

On August 23 an interesting event on Citizen Media is taking place in parallel with the Assembly.
