30 things to think about

To celebrate ACEVO’s 30th birthday, we asked people in and around civil society for their thought-provoking insights. We hope that these will inspire debate about how to make the biggest difference over the next 30 years. We published a new piece every day throughout November 2017.

Let us know what you think and join the conversation at #acevo30.
