The Dialogue Platform is a series of forums designed to develop and model a genuinely participative approach to local policymaking and bring together civil society organisations, local authorities and the private sector.

The forums enable policy and decision-makers to engage on a regular basis with civil society leaders and social, tech and creative entrepreneurs around themes relating to the project objectives. The forums will grow an active network of civil society, public and private practitioners, foster long-term engagement between those who participate, create a community capable of making a concerted, informed input into policy-making and act as a resource for the larger local government, civil society and entrepreneur sectors in Almaty.
