Start Network Virtual Assembly 2021

The  Virtual Assembly is the annual gathering of the Start Network members and stakeholders. This year the event was held from 16 to 18 November 2021.

The Start Network Assembly is the annual gathering of our members and stakeholders. This year the event will be held from 16 to 18 November 2021.

As Start Network shifts to a locally-led, globally scaled network, changing mindsets is at the core of transforming the way we work and so the theme for this year's Assembly is Changing mindsets, Transforming systems.

Join us and find out how Start Network is exploring new models of risk & accountability; re-imagining our role as that of a service provider to locally-led networks; adapting our programmes to an increasingly decentralised future; and examining colonial mentalities in our ways of working and the wider humanitarian sector.
