The ICCA Consortium was officially founded on 13 July 2010 and we are so grateful to now be celebrating our 10-year anniversary together! We invite our membership, partners and allies to join us in commemorating this important moment for our association and territories of life. We will hold a series of global events and support our membership to self-organise local and in-country activities throughout July 2020. These events will be the foundation for a multimedia 10-year retrospective report and the ICCA Consortium’s next 10-year vision.
