Forward Fest

Fast forward to the future of international solidarity

Is development cooperation dead? 
Can humour change the world? 
How deep can democracy go? 
Is the climate debate the debate of the coloniser? 

Forward Fest 2022 challenges you to think ahead, fast-forward into the future! What should the international solidarity sector of tomorrow look like? After a first successful online edition in 2020, with as many as 600 participants, we are excited to launch a new, second edition of Forward Fest where we can meet each other in person and digitally in a relaxed festival-like atmosphere. And you can be there!

Get inspired by fresh national and international voices. Spark your visions of the future with innovative ideas, new and successful methods, fascinating real-life stories, cutting-edge technology and reinvented partnerships. Let your imagination run wild and work together to respond to global challenges. Mark May 5 and 6 in your calendar to travel fast-forward and dive interactively into the future. 

Map out your own route

Create your own Forward Fest line-up with the many workshops in the programme. Performances and extra entertainment will ensure a festival-like mood on both days.
And don't forget: you decide your own schedule: do you want to attend both days? Great. Just one day? Amazing. Or just partake in a couple of sessions? Alright, that's possible too!


Forward Fest is an organisation of 11.11.11NGO federation and VLIR-UOS
in cooperation with MO*
with the support of Belgian Development Cooperation.
