Yes! Forum Syd is now ForumCiv!
The reason for changing the name is that the word "Syd" does not represent the organisation and also characterises an outdated view when the world was divided into north and south. In addition, Forum Syd is a global organisation and the Swedish word "Syd" does not work in a global context.
"We will keep the platform word Forum and add Civ, an abbreviation of civil society, because it is the civil society we ultimately defend," says Secretary-General Anna Stenvinkel. She continues, “This year we are celebrating twenty-five-years of defending civil society with the goal to demand fair and stronger democracies. Unfortunately, we see that the democratic space is shrinking, and our task is more important than ever."
