Reinventing European NGOs Workshop!


 Reinventing European NGOs Workshop!

1 June 2018 at Pianofabriek (Saint Gilles)


 Dear all,

 Back by popular demand - and open to all - the third edition of the « Reinventing European NGOs » (RENGOS) workshop is just around the corner!

Our guiding question will be: How can we challenge ourselves - personally, on team level and within our networks - to work more horizontal?

 Reinventing European NGOs (RENGOS) is an informal group of Brussels based professionals working for or with European NGO networks. We are keen to explore organisational challenges we believe we all face relating to governance, management and organisational development of our European NGO networks.

Inspired by Frederic Laloux's book,Reinventing Organisations, but not defined solely by it, we are organising one-day workshops to reflect on how we can evolve towards more inclusive, horizontal and efficient organisational models. Our context is very specific - based in Brussels with member organisations across Europe (and the world). We are all unique, but we share a common set of challenges that we would like to explore together. (2 previous editions were organised in 2017 -Read more here.)

 New Edition: 1 June 2018 at Pianofabriek

The day is designed for all those NGO activists and leaders engaging in networks who would like to reflect on new & innovative ways to engage and organise, within our teams, networks and hierarchies. This is again an opportunity for us to learn from pioneers as well as from our own brainstorming and experiences.

Our planned outcome is for each of us to leave with specific ideas for how we can move our own organisation forward.

You are running a European NGO network, you engage with NGOs or member-based organisations or you have a keen interest in the organisational development of your organisation? Then this day is for you.


Supported by our external facilitator Ria Baeck, well start the day with a testimony from Elena Blackmore from PRIC Transformation on their journey to go horizontal and we will use Open Space Technology for the breakout sessions. This ensures that all the issues any of us thinks is important will be covered! We make the agenda at the beginning of the day, together.
