In 2005, ACEVO started its international activities to increase knowledge sharing and therefore improve third sector governance at an international level. We are the only organisation in the world to offer this service, and now have members in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia and North America.
ACEVO's international work has two main functions:
- Connect Third Sector Leaders
Connect UK third sector leaders with international best practice and other networks of third sector leaders from around the world, in order to increase their learning
- Provide Support
Provide ongoing support to Euclid Network, the European-wide network for third sector leaders, which was launched as an independent organisation in November 2007 - visit the Euclid Network website
Through our achievers project, we have helped start up similar third sector leader networks in the following countries: Italy, Nigeria, Slovenia, Cameroon, Senegal, Pakistan and Japan.
Together, ACEVO and Euclid Network have compiled a study of nine countries approaches to the third sector. The study's findings were compiled in the publication titled Lessons from Abroad.
