RLC Bonn: “Mobilization for Change”-Workshop 2019

“All the research you are doing is for becoming an actor of change. We have heard about 14 different countries over the last three days, all with the same problems. With one common action we can create change”, said Helen Mack Chang, Laureate the Right Livelihood Award in 1992, about the RLC Bonn workshop “Mobilization for Change: Marginalized people and their access to opportunities and resources in a developing world” in May.

Mack Chang worked with 16 PhD students from Africa, Asia, and Latin America, who presented and discussed their applied research and, during the four-day workshop, built bridges between academia and activism.

The workshop was linked to the Global Media Forum of Deutsche Welle, which this year focused on shifting global power relations and its implications on media and civil society. Mack Chang participated in the TV show “Is civil society driven by networks?” (Sociedad civil: ¿amplificada por las redes?), which was aired all over Latin America and North America.
