Work with us
At Accountable Now we believe it is time to fundamentally change approaches to accountability in the civil society sector. Accountability needs to be based on a truly global understanding and it needs to move from a passive reporting exercise to a tool that promotes active stakeholder engagement.
This can only happen with a strong network of partners. We team up with experts from within and outside the sector and thought-leaders from across the world. We encourage all networks, organisations or individuals interested in partnering with us to advance to agenda of Dynamic Accountability to get in touch.
