Keynote Speaker Anastasia Matvieskaya, European Director of the International Association of Community Development (IACD)and Co-founder of the non-profit organisation Inclusive Practices based in the Republic of Georgia will outline how to tackle issues of inequality, poverty and promote social justice.
