Over the coming year, HRFN and Better by Codesign will host a series of learning labs to bring funders together to reimagine resourcing in restricted civic space and in crisis. In codesign sessions, participants will:

  • Explore how to move money to frontline movements in the increasingly challenging terrain of human rights;
  • Build concrete steps for coordination within our own institutions and across the field;
  • Practice, design, and refine systems to prepare for an uncertain future; and
  • Work in partnership with civil society and movements to develop funding that is responsive and grounded in the realities activists face.

This event is open for funders and civil society partners to learn more, try out the first prototyped tools, and explore the range of opportunities to participate.

Due to the nature of initiative, some future labs will be held in closed sessions. Others – including a Learning Labs Week in early November – will be open to a broader community of funders. Throughout the series, we will work with civil society and movement partners to ensure that any outcomes reflect the analysis and needs of those leading change. Join the launch even to learn more.
