IDEA Events

We connect agents of change and highlight new leaders.

IDEA Events are spaces driven by the IDEA Community to promote inspiration, learning and networking. The most important is the IDEA Forum, which is held every 2 years in a country in the region, but there are other national sectoral or intersectoral events, both in person and virtually.
