Convergences promotes the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the fight against poverty, exclusion and climate change in both developed and developing countries. Composed of more than 300 partner organisations from all sectors, the association acts to stimulate reflection and action, disseminate good practices and promote the co-construction of a world of “Zero Exclusion, Zero Carbon, Zero Poverty.”

Convergences works in all areas likely to have a decisive effect in favor of its objectives: sustainable development, international solidarity for development, solidarity and inclusive finance, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), social entrepreneurship, social and solidarity economy and new technologies for development.

ACTED & Convergences

ACTED is a founding and running member of the board of Convergences, chaired by Frédéric Roussel, the co-founder and head of development at ACTED. The team of Convergences is hosted and employed by ACTED, which also provides support for the overseas deployment of the Convergences annual forum, recently in Myanmar and Tunisia.

The 3Zero Global Alliance empowers stakeholders from all over the world to make lasting connections to create positive change and, together, educate and advocate to shape solutions and multisector partnerships that save and improve millions of lives. It inspires stakeholders to drive societal change and address some of the most pressing issues the world faces today.

ACTED calls upon its partners and stakeholders, as well as civil society, public and private actors but also academics and the media to work together on addressing the poverty challenge that most of the world’s population still faces, through an inclusive and low carbon growth, limited in use of natural resources and rich in personal and collective development. In order to do so in an inclusive, cross-sectoral and creative manner, stakeholders were called to join the 3Zero Global Alliance for a “Zero exclusion, Zero carbon, Zero poverty” world.
