Network Mission, Aims and Principles
The mission of the C4D Network is to support those working in the field of communication for development and to support the increased effectiveness and impact of communication for development, as a sector and area of practice, for the achievement of international development and human rights goals.
The C4D Network aims to achieve its mission by:
- Building C4D Community: Connecting and networking people and institutions that are engaging with communication for development around the world.
- Building C4D Knowledge: Exchanging and sharing the latest communication for development news, events, resources and thinking.
- Building C4D Capacity: Supporting learning and capacity development for C4D professionals and institutions around the world.
We ascribe to the C4D principles of participation, social justice and equity. In addition, the Network is based on a principle of inclusivity – as a professional network new membership is vetted, however the Network aims for all C4D enthusiasts to feel at home and welcome; whether highly experienced consultants or newly emerging talent. The free membership option is there to ensure that cost is not a barrier to participation.
