Co-Willing is a non-political and non-profit association with seat in Geneva, Switzerland.
Co-Willing was formed during the International conference ‘Freedom – Our Responsibility’ (FOR) in Bloemfontein, South Africa, in September 2014.
This conference was inspired by the insight that Good Governance and Sustainable Development promote self-empowerment for prosperity and peace.
FOR was a platform to share knowledge, tactics and/or resources among those who could benefit from these experiences and connections. The conference consisted of 250 people of all backgrounds, age groups, nationalities and fields of interest.
During this conference a small group of delegates met spontaneously and informally for the first time to explore the possibility of joining experiences and forces to promote sustainable development in Africa and encourage dialogue.
The Group of interested and committed people from all over the world are determined to share and implement their projects in reality.
To consolidate Co-Willing the group met 2015 in Switzerland and 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya.
