7 p.m. What is the church’s role in future aid programs?
Even before concepts such as aid or development cooperation existed, the church was already working with healthcare and education, driven by a global call to help one’s neighbor. Since then, more than most other organisations, they have worked persistently in the most difficult environments. How does the church view its mission today? And how do decision-makers and other stakeholders see the role of the church? What will be the church’s role when aid policy is reformed?

Come and listen to those in power and representatives of the church and other agents in civil society. We are also joined by a singing group from Congo Kinshasa.

The conversation leader is Magnus Carlquist, a member of the Missions and Aid Committee who has many years of experience in both civil society and Swedish government aid.
