The Baha’i International Community and partners are holding five sessions of a side event during the High Level Political Forum focused on local ownership of global processes. An 8-minute film profiling grassroots activities from around the world will be screened, followed by remarks from individuals and organizations engaged in similar processes and an open discussion.

Each of these side events will be capped at the first 20 participants to register, so please RSVP at your earliest convenience. (if overflow is necessary, we will find ways to be creative!).
