Convergences and Gawad Kalinga joined forces to co-create the “Barangay Walang Iwanan 2019” event that took place in the Philippines in January 2019.

A unique combination of GK’s Social Business Summit and a Convergences Forum, the event aimed to bring all stakeholders together in order to transform communities towards a Zero Exclusion, Zero Carbon, Zero Poverty goal.

The Barangay Walang Iwanan Event will be a 4 days event composed of 3 different moments :
