The Associations Round Tables are organized annually by the Union of International Associations (UIA). The Round Tables, that are the core of UIA’s education project, provide an opportunity to learn through networking and through practice, to meet other international associations and share experience and knowledge. In its 15th year of organizing Round Tables for international associations, the UIA was excited to bring this main event to Tokyo. This was the first time UIA has held the Round Table in a hybrid format, giving associations around the globe the opportunity to meet and learn in Tokyo.

131 delegates, from 34 countries, representing 98 international organizations participated. 58 in-person participants were welcomed onsite in Prague. Easy platform access, networking and educational content combined to provide an engaging and rewarding experience for all delegates. Plenary sessions were presented on “Associations in the World: Speaking Truth to Power” and “Achieving goals, finding partners: UIA’s Global Civil Society Database”. Interactive workshops addressed current topics such as: membership retention and engagement; the application of artificial intelligence in society; empowering teams by design thinking; the organization of hybrid events; and the relations between the United Nations system and civic associations.
The presentations and the workshops were led by association experts and the delegates shared and discussed their associations’ experience, challenges and solutions.
