We promote social inclusion and wider participation by strengthening civil society throughout the Americas. This includes:
- ensuring citizens interact with states in ways which encourage collaboration and create societies that work better for people
- encouraging more effective, transparent and consultative citizen-state interactions in order to reduce tensions in the post-conflict context of Colombia, thus contributing to the Peace Process
- developing partnerships and collaborative programmes to address problems faced by women and girls, making progress towards gender equality
- strengthening social cohesion and proactively endorsing our values of equality, diversity and inclusion through our arts offer in the region, with a particular emphasis on gender inequality, disability arts and LGBT rights.
