Shared vision, openness and trust
Rutgers connects civil society organisations to form alliances and partnerships for sustainability.
Mutually beneficial partnerships work when there is equity and an open culture of sharing, shared vision and trust. When organisations of different capacities join hands and work together well, their overall effectiveness is enhanced.
Building alliances is not always easy. Not everyone has an equal voice at the table and this can create power imbalances and reduce effectiveness. Time is needed to address these issues.
