Life is not always Either-Or Life is often richer and more complicated when it is Both-And. So for 2014 our theme seeks to locate and discuss ways we are building or could build partnerships that bridge gaps, explore intersectional ties, break down silos, and strengthen policy and action through increased synergies and energies from collaboration and mutual activities.
