The RINGO Project: Re-Imagining the INGO and the Role of Global Civil Society

Sign up for our newsletter

What is RINGO?

The Ringo Project is a systems change initiative that seeks to transform global civil society to respond to today’s challenges. In partnership with systems change experts Reos, we are convening a unique ‘Social Lab’ of global innovators who represent ‘the system’ of INGOs (including southern partners, funders and INGO leaders) to rapidly develop and launch prototypes that can transform INGO institutions and the systems in which they function. RINGO is the first globally-coordinated cross-sectoral effort to revolutionize the sector by interrogating the purpose, structures, power, and positioning of INGOs.

Fill out the Google form and tell us a bit about yourself and your interest in the project.
